A plan to build flats on an empty Glasgow land was rejected.

The bid sought to erect six flats on a patch of greenery on Causewayside Street in Cambuslang.

According to papers, the area was used as a storage for metal items and has been disused for 25 years.

Applicant New West Properties Ltd was hoping to build a three-storey site with a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom flat planned on the ground floor.

On the first floor, two two-bedroom flats were proposed.

The second floor would have been made up of two two-bedroom homes as well.

Glasow City Council's planning officials knocked back the application, saying it "would result in the development of a protected amenity greenspace site that has not been allocated for development."
