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.
Alexandra Park is one of Glasgow’s most significant parks, one of four designed by Sir Joseph Paxton. The 104 acre park takes its name from Princess Alexandra, the wife of the future King Edward VII, who officially opened the Park in 1870. The highest point of the park gives views north to Ben Lomond and south to Tinto hills. The City Improvement Trustees purchased the park in 1866 from Mr Walter Stewart of Haghill.
A community information event has been organised by Glasgow’s Poverty Leadership Panel and North East Area Delivery Group – organisations working to address poverty in the city.
