A "MAJOR" residential development could be built on the banks of the River Clyde. 

Vacant brownfield land off Bulldale Street, in Yoker, has been earmarked for new homes, car parking, and landscaping. 

Developers have applied to Glasgow City Council for planning permission in principle on the site. No further details have been provided but, if successful, JR Construction Scotland Ltd would then submit full proposals, including the number of properties and design, as part of a bid for planning permission.

The large, former industrial site was the subject of a pre-planning application consultation last year. 

According to documents submitted by Mast Architects, only one response was received during this time. 

Opposing the proposal, the local cited a "lack of built form to reinforce street edges of Yoker Ferry Road and Bulldale Street". The individual also argued that Bulldale Street should be maintained as a walkway towards the River Clyde "in the name of good urban designs".

They further stated the existing plans were "inconclusive" and accused the firm of "showing real contempt for the public at large". 

However, developers believe they can allay these fears and stated: "The applicant has actively sought and responded to the views of the community and the team are confident that the resultant development addresses the issues raised during the consultation process.

"The applicant has taken onboard the comments received during the pre-application consultation process and these have positively influenced the development, to create a robust proposal which addresses the issues and opportunities in the area." 

A decision is expected to be made later this year. To view the full application, visit the council's planning website and use the reference 21/02535/PPP.
