New 750-home development to transform derelict Govan docks
Developer submits 'pre-application consultation' to Glasgow City Council.
Plans have been revealed for 750 new homes to be built at Govan graving docks in Glasgow, which have been derelict for 40 years.
Developer New City Vision has submitted a notice of "pre-application consultation" to the city council ahead of submitting a planning application in April.
The docks, built between the 1860s and 1890s, were some of the deepest in Britain and form an important part of Glasgow's industrial and cultural history.
New City Vision is now proposing to build 750 new homes at the site, including 100 which would be affordable housing.
The plans also include conservation of the historic docks, surrounding features and the harbour basin to the west.
Public spaces and a heritage centre are also proposed by the developer.
New City Vision will also build improved walking and cycling connections from Govan to the city centre and construct a bridge linking Govan to the SECC.
The proposals will now enter a three-month consultation period before a full application is made to Glasgow City Council's planning department.
