Proposed Parking Charges

Posted on: April 24th, 2016 by admin No Comments


Glasgow City Council proposes new parking charges at Beith Street, Meadow Road and Dumbarton Road in Partick. Signs have already been posted by the council in these roads.

Our problem is that the only unrestricted parking left in the area will be at Glasgow Harbour.

For more information please see the council website.

Scottish Water – Planning Application

Posted on: April 16th, 2016 by admin No Comments


You cannot have missed that there is a major project underway at the moment at Glasgow Harbour. Scottish Water is currently upgrading the sewage feed into the River Clyde. For details of the planning application 16/00390/DC please see the Glasgow government website. There are a number of documents that you might like to review.

The Proprietors' Association Glasgow Harbour (Taylor Wimpey Development) committee have decided to raise an objection to the application. A copy of this letter may be found with the documents attached to the planning application.

If after reading the documents you feel that you would like to join us by raising an objection that would help us to influence Glasgow City Council as the council is more likely to be impressed by multiple objections than just a single one.

As usual if you would like more information please send us an email via our Contact page.
