Former Golfhill Primary School Site Development
A public consultation meeting on the proposed housing development by Barony Homes on the site of the B-listed building was held on Wednesday 5th April 2017 at Milnbank Community Hall. The draft plan for 145 units was presented by Jewitt & Wilkie Architects to invite feedback from interested parties within the local community.
A planning application will be submitted to Glasgow City Council planners in May and this final design will reflect the comments made in the period leading up to the submission. The proposal can be downloaded from the Dennistoun Community Council website.
The primary school has been lying empty for the past 10 years when Golfhill Primary and Westercraigs Nursery closed following a subsidance survey. Pupils from the primary school were transferred to accommodation at Whitehill Secondary School and the nursery children were transferred to Alexandra Parade Primary.
