Ambitious plans for the site of the Govan Graving Docks are being brought forward after a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) was submitted to Glasgow City Council.
The submission signals the start of a 12-week pre-application consultation period on the residential element of the project, giving the public the opportunity to leave feedback which can shape the developer’s plans.
Taking a hybrid form, the consultation programme will include both online and in-person events. An in-person session will be held on Thursday 25 August and Thursday 6 October at The Riverside Hall between 11:00am – 4:30pm before an evening session on both dates at The Pearce Institute (840-860 Govan Rd, Govan, Glasgow G51 3UU) between 5:30-7:30pm.
In addition, two live interactive chat sessions will be held on Tuesday 30 August and Tuesday 11 October between 3-7pm and will be accessible via the project website: www.govangravingdocks.com.
The proposals, first announced last month, would see the site transformed into a thriving community space, incorporating a bold and imaginative balance between creating new homes, preserving, repairing and reopening the docks – while inviting other exciting and compatible uses.
Harry O’Donnell, Chairman of New City Vision, said: “I am really delighted to be bringing our proposals forward for the residential development aspect as part of the regeneration of the Govan Graving Docks.
“The submission of the Proposal of Application Notice marks the next stage in our project timeline and kickstarts our statutory 12-week pre-application consultation programme.
“We are committed to listening and engaging with members of the public as we move towards the submission of a formal planning application, and I would urge anyone with an interest in the proposals to attend one of our online or in-person consultation events.”
It is anticipated that a planning application will be submitted to Glasgow City Council for the new residential element of the proposals, towards the end of the year, following the conclusion of the 12-week pre-application consultation period.
