New housing development proposal for derelict site Dorchester Avenue.


There is to be a PUBLIC EVENT to find out more about the proposed development on THURSDAY 12th MAY at KELVINDALE BOWLING CLUB, 91a Baronaald Drive, Glasgow, G12 0HP  from 3pm -7pm. 

We have received this communication from Mactaggart & Mickel Homes which will give you some background information. 

” Mactaggart & Mickel Homes is committed to working closely with the community of Kelvindale and Glasgow City Council to ensure the successful delivery of the development at Dorchester Avenue.

We intend to resubmit a refreshed proposal for the site which will provide the area with quality housing in the form of 132 studio, one and two-bedroom flats.

We would like to invite you to attend a public event to find out more about the proposed development. 

Development Overview.

Mactaggart & Mickel Homes is hoping to submit a new planning application for its site at Dorchester Avenue. While the original application, which received consent in 2005, included plans for 86 units ranging from townhouses to duplex apartments, we have been closely monitoring the ongoing development of the local market in Glasgow. With this is mind we believe our new proposals will better meet the needs of buyers.

The plans incorporate 132 contemporary studio, one and two-bedroom apartments housed in three individual buildings. Parking and bicycle storage facilities are included for every home. Landscaping plans include shared green space and a woodland area. The proposed seven and eight storey buildings will be designed using a carefully selected palette of materials in keeping with existing properties in the local area.


  • Provides a positive use for a site that has lain empty for a number of years
  • Helps meet the growing demand for properties for first time buyers and young professionals in the Glasgow area
  • Incorporates even more green and shared space including a woodland area which will enhance the local environment
  • Is sustainable given its proximity to local amenities “


We would urge anyone with an interest in this to attend the event and, if they have any concerns, to follow them up using the procedures which will be explained at the event.

As a Community Council we will also be looking at this plan, and, after discussion at our next meeting on 19th May, we will also be ensuring that any points that we need to raise are raised in accordance with the procedures and time scales contained within the Planning process and regulations.
