WARD NO(S)
54, Kingston COMMUNITY COUNCIL
02_076, Kinning Park
CONSERVATION AREA
LISTED ADVERT TYPE
Contrary to Development Plan Bad Neighbour Development
PUBLISHED 28 January 2005

SITE AND DESCRIPTION
Outline planning permission is sought for a mixed development on that part of the former garden festival site
east of Govan Road comprising Class 4 business, residential, local retail and hotel. The proposal by Pacific
Quay Developments Ltd (PQD), a joint venture partnership between Grosvenor Developments Ltd, Miller
Developments Ltd and CTP Ltd, forms part of their ongoing development of Pacific Quay, one of the City’s key
strategic industrial and business areas.
The application site which is approximately 10.59 hectares of derelict reclaimed dockland is bounded by Pacific
Drive to the northwest, the realigned Govan Road to the east and Festival Park to the South. The Council
owned Festival Park has been included within the application site boundary with the aim of better integrating
the Park both with the development and the surrounding hinterland, through improved access, the development
of new route ways and environmental improvements, including the partial redistribution of parkland.
An illustrative development framework which presents a notional layout, an arrangement of development plots,
generic buildings forms and hierarchy of roads, footpaths and opens spaces has also been submitted in support
of the application. All these elements will be the subject of detailed design through the submission of future
reserved matters applications. The submission is also accompanied by a Transport Assessment plus
supporting position statements on planning policy, urban design, services, drainage and ground engineering.
PLANNING BACKGROUND
In 1995 outline planning permission was granted for the erection of a mixed development including the science
centre, marina, hotel and restaurants, business park, offices and residential use on the portion of the former
Garden Festival site now lying to the north of Pacific Drive. This has facilitated the development of the Glasgow
Science Centre, IMAX Cinema and the new headquarters for BBC Scotland due for completion 2006 with
broadcasting in 2007. Phase 1 of the riverside business park is now complete and in use as the Criminal
Records Office and detailed planning permission has been obtained for phase 2, situated immediately east of
the BBC building.
The neighbouring ‘A’ listed Four Winds Building has been refurbished and is now occupied by Beat FM with
associated performance area, café/bar and office accommodation and phase 3 is occupied by the new
headquarters for Scottish Media Group (SMG), due for completion 2006. A fourth phase is planned between
the phase 1 building and the new SMG building. The new Finnieston Road Bridge is also now under
construction and will improve Pacific Quay’s access to the City’s strategic road and public transport networks. A
further outline application by Scottish Enterprise for the development of the Pacific Quay Canting Basin as a
‘digital media quarter’ and associated uses is also expected early 2006. Full planning permission has already
been granted for a bespoke class 4 business development by the McKenzie Partnership in association with
Scottish Enterprise Glasgow (SEG) on the Canting Basins eastern perimeter south of the IMAX Cinema with a
start date expected early in 2006.

PQ site Got the Go ahead today... smiling>>

Festival site plan passed


CITY planners have backed a £150million scheme to transform the former Glasgow Garden Festival site.

Pacific Quay Developments will now draw up detailed proposals for the 30 acre site on the Clyde, which are likely to include a 150-bed hotel and 300 new homes, and could create 5000 jobs.


THE complex will go on the derelict site next to the Science Centre


21/12/05





PQ development up for final go ahead today.

Several Features on Govan @ PQ in the Herald today.

Govan looks to brighter future on the Clyde

The district has become a byword for urban decay. A once-thriving working class community laid waste by the collapse of shipbuilding on the River Clyde.
Now Govan, a focal point of Glasgow's rich industrial past, is set for a renaissance with the approval of a £150m hotel, housing, and shopping complex along the riverfront.
Developers say the project on the former Glasgow Garden Festival site will create 5000 jobs and link the area with the Finnieston bridge and the new BBC and STV headquarters at Pacific Quay.

Couple of images of news cuttings from the Herald feb 95.

Previous plan from SDA who became GDA who became SE of pacific quay @ the South rotunda, seems Stuart Gulliver the then CEO (the man who started it all got his wish) the finnieston bridge was always on plan but not publicised till the late 90s.


The geoffery Jarvis Scheme was a bit pie in the sky realy, they had no real stealth behind them, i think it was a consortium called Clyde Heritge who later put a bid in for bringing the HMS Britannia to the graving docks, they were trying to change the councils mind in to keeping the GF site as a solely leisure destination with over head cable cars and so forth.

Im not a huge fan of the bridge itself (the Sydney Harbour treatment...) but it does go rather well with the stepped block to the left, as well as the Finnieston crane on the other side of the river. Pity the tunnel entrance prohibits the construction of a parrallel one on the other side of the road...

Is it just the three sections? Surely there'll be a couple more to come - I can't see how just those three pieces would form the whole arch.

And I trust you weren't the one doing the driving when that shot was taken!

While we're on the subject, I'm still searching for that road layout plan for this bridge that someone posted a while back, showing how the surrounding streets were to be amended. Anyone got it?

Looking at the completed image renders i see that the steel supprort pillars under the bridge which can presently be seen are missing.

I wonder if they will get removed? It would be a job and a half to remove them from under the bridge now.

Socceroo, I would have thought they're just there to take up the weight of the bridge deck until they can get arch in place. Once that's all set up and supporting the deck, the temporary pillars can be removed.

Otherwise, how else would they be supporting the deck? I'm no civil engineer, so I could well be missing something here...

In Gleegie's picture, just look at the difference in colour between the two phases of Lancefield Quay...



Can't they just paint the whole thing black?

Maybe its this one chief ,i posted up in one of the hacked threads.

And this the traffic Impact assessment measures taken by Landservices to ensure that the Bridge is not used by Rat Runners ...lol .

The range of measures proposed initially for the strategy are based largely on amendments to the SECC traffic
management scheme and include improved junction engineering at Finnieston Street/Clydeside Expressway;
banned manoeuvres at the new Finnieston Roundabout junction and on Tunnel Street; one-way operations on
lengths of Finnieston Street and Tunnel Street; additional bus lanes on Finnieston Street and Govan Road; a
bus gate at Pacific Drive; and specific cycle times for automatic signals in favour of bridge traffic.
The updated TIA re-addresses management needs in the absence of the SECC scheme, and abandons the
original measures in favour of:
(i) no turns onto Finnieston Quay or Lancefield quay from the bridge;
(ii) no right turn from Finnieston Street onto Finnieston Quay;
(iii) no right turn from Finnieston Quay onto the bridge;
(iv) no left turn from Lancefield Quay onto the bridge;
(v) no left turn from the bridge onto Govan Road;
(v) no right turn from Govan Road onto the bridge;
(vii) no U-turn on Govan Road at its junction with Pacific Drive;
(viii) one way direction on Tunnel Street and no right turn from there onto Finnieston Street;
(ix) a bus gate on Govan Road at Pacific Drive; and
(x) a bus pre-signal linked to the southern bridgehead junction.

Thanks for that Mo. The descriptions and picture are excellent - as are the stuff you sent me a while ago.

As I remember it, and I'm beginning to think I may have been imagining things, there was another road layout plan showing the planned changes on the finnieston side of the bridge, including the new SECC layout (i.e. a similar plan to the one above, but more to the 'right' of what's shown).

Thanks again for helping me out there mate - much appreciated!

Explain what? The different weathering characteristics of materials which are

a) Several years old
b) Brand new
c) In different orientations, aspects and exposures

If a material is known to degrade so rapidly, why choose to use it?
