Planning application ‘called -in’

Incredible News! Have a look at the Government letter sent to Glasgow City Council planning department  requesting a ‘call-in’ and asking for all the relevant documents. You can view the planners report here

Having considered the proposal, the Scottish Ministers have decided, in terms of Section 46 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 to require the application to be referred to them for determination. Accordingly, a Direction, given in terms of Section 46 is enclosed.

The Scottish Ministers have given this Direction in view of the proposed development’s potential loss of valued open/green space and possible conflict with Scottish Planning Policies and development plan policies.


We’ve recieved amazing support across the country, from people and organisations supporting our plea to the Scottish Government asking them to ‘call-in’  the application. Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and supported us. The next step will be to request a Public Enquiry.  Finally, we will have a voice in this whole process.

Supporting our plea to ‘call-in’ the plans to build on North Kelvin Meadow and The Children’s Wood
