STATEMENT ON GOLFHILL SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT
Dennistoun Community Council would like to take this opportunity to clarify their position in relation to the proposed development at Golfhill School, Dennistoun by Barony Homes.
Further to previously published information about the early stage proposals and public meeting regarding the former Golfhill School (which can be found here, and here), the Architect working on behalf of the Builder and Developer) made the following comment:
Early stage proposals for the former Golfhill Primary School were made available at the public meeting held yesterday. An official planning application is due to be submitted in May.
The Scottish Government is keen to hear the views of children and young people on the proposals in Places, People and Planning which may directly affect them. Working with YoungScot, a short online survey has been commissioned to seek views of children and young people on how the place where they live, work or go to school should change in the future. The survey can be accessed here: http://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90029151/05e0182d3299
There will be a public meeting in relation to the development proposals for the former Golfhill School, as follows: Wednesday 5th April 2017 (12:00-19:00) at Milnbank Community Hall, 53 Ballindalloch Drive, G31 3DQ.
On the 10th January 2017, Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Local Government and Housing, launched “Places, People and Planning: A consultation of the future of the Scottish Planning System”.
As Glasgow City Council develops the strategy for the city’s parks and green spaces across the next two years, they are looking to collect as many ideas and opinions, stories and suggestions as possible from park users to help shape their decisions.
