The Strathbungo Society is currently examining its policy on planning applications. Safeguarding the built heritage of our unique area is one of our founding principals but we also want to promote a thriving and developing community.
Currently we tend to object to any proposal that contravenes the Glasgow City Plan 2, or suggest ways in which an application might be amended to preserve or enhance the character of the area. We also refer to the Strathbungo Conservation Area Appraisal when considering planning applications.
We have commented on four planning issues in the past year, once in support of an appeal against a planning enforcement decision, once in support of a planning enforcement notice, and two objections to plans in or close to Strathbungo.
We will be revising this section and hoping to demystify the planning process for residents. In the meantime, by kind permission of Friends Of Glasgow West, I heartily recommend reading their guide to the life history of a planning application.
