Whilst some concessions have been made, the entire project still has minimal open space. The majority of visitors leaving the drop-in session felt that the number of flats proposed was excessive and that the loss of the open space necessary to build them was not acceptable.
The Pre-planning consultation is still underway. It would help enormously if you could voice your demands to keep flats off the Meadow. Every item of correspondence received by the developer will have to mentioned as part of their final report to Glasgow City Council. Please help us make the council understand that this development is not wanted.

Glasgow City Council Sports Pitch Policy:
Para 8.5 – Release of Blaes Pitches
“It should be recognised however that sports pitches also act as
informal recreational green spaces with value for amenity and informal
outdoor use. Any proposals to dispose of sports pitches should be
subject to consultation with local communities, and require a
determination by Council that these pitch spaces are not required as
part of any other open space function.”
