“A PLEA was made to Scottish Executive ministers to stop controversial plans to build flats in a historic part of Glasgow.”
Or as a contributor to the Evening Times website writes about the article:-
The original development masterplan did not mass the site with 106 apartments and 6 houses. Nor did it have a horozontal roof line striking out at the highest point but a steped roof line. It did not have a copper roof but slate to compliment the existing. It had window fenestrations to compliment the existing terrace not ground to roof line unbroken triangular extrusions. The original masterplan did not have 115 cars accessing the site via the lane to the rear.
Whomever wrote this is NIMBYism is missing the point. Stuart Milnes proposed building is fine. It is however inappropriate for this site.
