APPLICATION TYPE Full Planning Permission
RECOMMENDATION Grant Subject to Condition(s)

APPLICATION 09/01758/DC DATE VALID 29.07.2009
SITE ADDRESS Site Bounded By Landressy Street /Main Street & James Street Glasgow
PROPOSAL Public realm improvements, including resurfacing, street furniture, feature lighting, bus
shelters, formation of pedestrian crossing and landscaping

APPLICANT Clyde Gateway URC
15 Bridgeton Cross
Glasgow
G40 1BN

AGENT Gillespies LLP 21 Carlton Court
GLASGOW
G5 9JP

WARD NO(S) 09, Calton COMMUNITY COUNCIL 02_037, Calton/Bridgeton
CONSERVATION LISTED AREA
ADVERT TYPE Affecting a Conservation Area/Listed Building PUBLISHED 14 August 2009
CITY PLAN Residential


SITE AND DESCRIPTION
Full Planning Permission and is sought by the Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Company for Public realm
improvements, including resurfacing, street furniture, feature lighting, bus shelters, formation of pedestrian
crossing and landscaping at Bridgeton Cross. A separate Listed Building Consent is being sought for the
refurbishment of the A-Listed Bridgeton Shelter which sits at the heart of this space and forms part of this overall
project.
The site, measuring 0.469Ha currently functions as a public space, comprising a central pedestrianised area,
bounded by Landressy Street, James Street and Main Street. The proposal will replace exiting street furniture
and planting features and extend the pedestrianised area by the closure to vehicular traffic of the turnhead to
the west of the Shelter (access for emergency vehicles only to be retained). It is also proposed that new bus
shelters, feature lighting and a new column for the existing CCTV camera are incorporated into the overall
design.
The importance of Bridgeton Cross as a focal point for the community is recognised in the East End Local
Development Strategy and is also identified as a key project in the Clyde Gateway Regeneration Initiative. In
addition to the A-Listed shelter, the site is bounded by several B-listed buildings and has the potential to be one
of the City’s finest historic crosses. The City Council are currently assessing the potential of the area around the
Cross to achieve Conservation Area status, as recommended in the East End Local Development Strategy. It is
considered that the current condition of the public realm at the cross does little to enhance the setting of this key
location.
The applicant seeks to enhance the function of this civic space through its redesign using high quality surface
materials, street furniture and landscaping, and by introducing elements of public art and new feature lighting
across the site.

Excellent that this escaped the flats conversion passed in 2003 for it, and will be brought back into community use. It's a shame the interior has been trashed over the years, but I guess that makes this kind of conversion all the more acceptable since it doesn't involve the loss of much historic fabric that isn't already beyond redemption.

Few pics of it in its heyday - this is after the interior was remodelled in 1930s style, and the exterior had also received a 1930s spruce up with the faïence tiling and neon.

Halcrow is playing an important role in helping to improve one of the most deprived areas of the UK. The east end of Glasgow contains three of the UK’s most deprived parliamentary wards; it has high levels of long-term unemployment and the lowest life expectancy in Western Europe.

The Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Company (URC) aims to turn this around over the next 15 years by building new homes for 20,000 people, creating 20,000 new jobs and improving 350 hectares of brownfield land. Scotland’s economic development agency, Scottish Enterprise, is investing £248 million into the area, and an additional £1.4 billion is expected from the private sector.

We are delighted to report that South Lanarkshire Council have unanimously granted planning permission for our mixed-use regeneration scheme at Two74 Cambuslang Road in Glasgow. The development will be anchored by a major food store and will also offer restaurants, a nine storey 170 room hotel, 9 screen cinema, 50,000 sq ft sport retail, 55,000 sq ft of employment with over 800 car spaces. The value of the scheme is £50 million for a site covering 20 acres.

The scheme known as Two74 is located on the Cambuslang Road, around one mile east of Rutherglen town centre. The prominent location lies at Junction 2 of the M74, which is currently being extended to link Glasgow to the west of Scotland, and is in close proximity to the site of the Commonwealth Games taking place in 2014.

Status
Planning Permission was granted in August 2009 and work is due to commence on site in 2011.

Size
20 acres

Value
£50 million

Report on Physical Regeneration within Southside Central Ward 8 with
details of key developments, both proposed and underway


ITEM 4 7 FEBRUARY 2011

Purpose of Report:
To advise on Key developments

Recommendations:
That the Committee notes the content of the report

4.0 Clyde Gateway
4.1 As members will be aware, part of the Southside Central Ward (Oatlands
and Toryglen) area falls within the boundary of the Clyde Gateway URC.
This is Scotland’s largest regeneration project and is identified as a
national priority by the Scottish Government.
4.2 The URC boundary also takes in parts of the East End, Shawfield and
Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire. The key role of the URC is to deliver new
investment, jobs and homes by taking advantage of the opportunities
unlocked by the delivery and completion of M74 later this year and the East
End Regeneration Route, both of which are currently under construction.
4.2 As well as physical projects, the URC is focusing investment on training
and investment in local communities to allow local residents to take
advantage of the opportunities which are being created. All contracts
awarded by the URC contain local benefit clauses to ensure opportunities
for local residents.
4.3 Over the next 20 years the target of the URC is to deliver:

�� £1.5b of private sector investment
�� 400,000 sq. m. of business space
�� 21,000 jobs
�� 10,000 new houses
�� an increase in the population across the communities by 20,000 people

4.4 A number of key projects have already been completed although much of
the early focus has been on site acquisition, infrastructure works and site
decontamination to provide the basis for future development proposals.

So that’s yet another Council planning-approved nail in the coffin for poor old struggling Rutherglen Main Street (gets to look every day more like the Vicky Road story of decline all over again).

In a nice example of destroying the value of your earlier huge investments, that’s the same Rutherglen Main Street where South Lanarkshire Council spent tens of millions of public pounds on the white elephant known as the ‘renovated and upgraded’ Old Town Hall. But that was mostly European (taxpayers’) money so that’ll be OK then.

Meantime, public-funded Clyde Gateway has bought over from the South Lanarkshire Council another built-not-too-long-ago public sector building. This was the modern Housing Offices at the foot of Stonelaw Road.

The public-funded Gateway has pumped more public money into this public- funded but quickly redundant building to produce... a whole lot of brand new serviced office spaces. I'll bet the local commercial premises market people were much heartened by that subsidised competition in an already hard-pressed location.

Reasonable people might just wonder if a lot more sustainable long-term value could have been got for the local economy by investing directly in local private companies, social enterprises and local entrepreneurs - instead of external public sector agencies all playing merry-go-round, trying to out-guess the market and spending huge amounts of public money on white elephants.

To be fair, the Ruggie Town Hall is a pretty decent venue and I wouldn't say its a white elephant. I've been to 2 wedding receptions there and a birthday party too. It must be attracting people from out with the area too because none of the parties I've been to are from the Rutherglen area.

An excellent point. There has been some pretty serious talk recently of getting rid of these enterprise organisations and simply providing much needed funding to local businesses. I have to say, on the whole these local firms know how to run a business and make money - the only missing piece of the puzzle is access to finance. Scottish Enterprise are bloated, inept and extremely good at taking credit where its not due. As an organisation is too cozy with certain industry partners at the expense of the wider economy and in the case of clyde gateway, is acting despicably. Why commit to something if you hadn't identified and ringfenced the cash? I suppose, its only the east-end though. No exciting nano-technology businesses to support there eh?

The only thing we should be concentrating on is building external trade links to the BRIC countries more effectively. Let market demand dictate how we support our firms, not try and force initiatives on them that no-one wants.

Been an eyesore for years now, so glad to see proposals to tidy this block up - not a hugely inspiring render though... (and I see the ET no longer publishes full stories on its website)

Bridge means business ...




6 Apr 2011

European cash is being used to push forward regeneration in Glasgow’s jobs-starved East End.

It will pay for almost half the cost of a new footbridge across the Clyde, linking Dalmarnock with the Shawfield area – the first visible structure in place ahead of the creation of a new national business district.

The district will cost tens of millions of pounds and offer potential employers a multi-use location to set-up a range of bases from new offices to manufacturing sites as well as workshops, depots and warehousing.

Officials at the Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Company are tasked with creating 20,000 jobs in 20 years, and reckon up to 15,000 of these will be in the business district

Wow. Good to see the infrastructure links going in early. Pity its not taking a bus lane though i guess a road bridge would be closer to £20m.

I cant think of a new bridge being built over the Clyde up from the weir - m74 aside.

CLYDE GATEWAY SUSTAINABLE MASTERPLAN GETS GREEN LIGHT


An infrastructure masterplan for South Dalmarnock in Glasgow's East End has been approved by the Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Company.

South Dalmarnock is a flood-prone 10ha derelict site close to the 2014 Commonwealth Games athletes’ village in Glasgow.

The masterplan contains two parks to improve drainage, including an area next to the River Clyde which will store water using ponds with changing levels.

Central Park will include two large ponds that will collect, store and filter water, whilst providing a natural habitat for wildlife.

Jon Simmons, director of landscape architecture at engineering consultancy Grontmij, said: “These ponds have been designed to take surface water from a large catchment area to maximise development opportunities right across the East End.

“The project is yet to go through planning, however the masterplan has now been approved by the Clyde Gateway board and the design team has consulted with the planners’ throughput the development process.”
