On Tuesday 18th September, I attend the planning committee meeting which considered plans to demolish the tenement and erect an extension to Glasgow Academy on the site at Colebrooke Place and Colebrooke Street, Kelvinbridge.
Colebrooke Lane - Entrance gate from Colebrooke Place
Colebrooke Lane - Exit gate to Colebrooke Street.
I highlighted the need for access to be maintained in and out of Colebrooke Lane during the building works. This lane is the main access route for car parking to the properties in Belmont Street and Colebrooke Street. Traffic management during the works will have to address concerns about congestion at peak times in Belmont Street, Belmont Crescent and Wilton Street.
The proposal to expand facilities for pupils at Glasgow Academy was approved by the Planning Committee. During the building works, I will be working with all those involved to ensure that any concerns raised by residents including access issues, noise, dust, and general disturbance are addressed.
