A DEVELOPER wants to build 48 new homes in Partick - and the project has already received an objection from a local resident. 

Clydeside BSW Developments have asked for planning permission for the project to be given the go-ahead on the site to the south of Crawford Street, Rosevale Street and Beith Street.

The application, which would see properties built on green space, also proposes a car-free residential development. 

The planning statement said: "The site is currently undeveloped open space, generally grass-covered, with a number of mature trees.

"The site is in the ownership of Peel L&P and is part of the greater Glasgow Harbour land holding and regeneration masterplan."

The planning application, however, has already received one objection from local resident Thomas Howe. 

He said: "The height of the proposed development raises privacy concerns as the two proposed developments are taller than my building. I also believe these developments would block natural light coming into my residence.

"I also have concerns over parking. It states it will be a car-free development but two electric parking bays are to be installed reducing the number of bays we already have to pay for. I have counted the empty spaces on each night when this came to light and we have four to five empty bays and 48 residences being built.

"Finally and most importantly this area is the only green space between my address and Kelvingrove Park. Felling these trees for this development would take away something from the community. By placing the buildings with the trees you plan to leave is as bad as felling them.

"These are my objections and I will continue to gather support for saving our dear green space."

The last dates for comments are August 21 and planners are expected to make a decision on the plans by September 20.
