Urgent! Planning Application Received

Dear all

Planning Application Received

After 4 years and many false starts we have finally received notice that a formal Planning Application has been lodged with the Council.  The application from New City Vision is for the building of 90 dwellings on the Meadow. If this development is given planning permission then this will mean the end for our much-loved community resource.

The full details are posted on Glasgow City Council’s website here: http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/en/OnlineServices/Planning/PlanningConfirmation.htm  Try searching for Clouston Street or use the reference number 12/00924/DC.

At first sight it looks every bit as bad as we had expected.  Here, for example is Clouston Street

How you can help

Over the next few days we will be analysing the 65 separate documents of the planning application to establish ways in which we can defeat the application.

Soon we will be asking that all our supporters write a letter of objection to Glasgow City Council. To help, we will be sharing key information about how this formal objection should be written and the sort of issues that a Planning Committee will take into consideration and what information you need to include to ensure that your voice is heard.

Your letters will be crucial to overturning the threat to the Meadow.  So please get your pens at the ready!  If we all act together we stand a very good chance of defeating this.
