Glasgow City Council has noted that objections to the Spirit Pub Group’s application for Full Planning & Listed Building Consent for Sammy Dows, will be accepted up to Thursday 6 June. You can make an objection either online or by writing to Development & Regeneration Services, 231 George Street, Glasgow G1 1RX.
The proposals – which include a raised 2.2 m (7ft) decking area for drinking and smoking to the rear and adjacent to the private, residences and gardens of Nithsdale Road, Moray Place and Regent Park Square – are damaging to the area’s amentiy and contrary to several City Council planning policies.
It is important that neighbours use this opportunity to formally object to the proposal, not least as it could, if won, be used by other local establishments to pursue the same (ie intrusion into private, residential amenity of our back courts, gardens and homes).
FinalPlanObjections-Sammy Dows gives full details of key planning policies relevant to this application. Compotent objections must refer to key planning policies and be in your own words.

The owners of Sammy Dows (Spirit Pub Company) have lodged a Full Planning Application with Glasgow City Council for “Internal and external alterations including frontage alterations, installation of canopies and formation of rear access deck (associated with external seating area for public house)“. The first time adjoining neighbours – only 67-57 Nithsdale Road, 1-6 Moray Place and 38-42 Regent Park Square – heard of this was on Saturday 18 May 2013, when they received a Neighbour Notification Notice. It appears that comments are required to be filed by Thursday 24 May 2013.
The application, is here – with drawings and key dates etc.:
That this is the first time that near-neighbours have been made aware of an application that was first recived by the Council on 14 February 2013, validated the following month and then (quietly?) advertised on 3 May 2013, perhaps shows the way the applicant wishes to play this: strictly by-the-book without any local pre-consultation.
Hopefully, it will be discussed this evening at the monthly meeting of the Strathbungo Society.
The Shawlands Academy Lighting Project – part of the Shawlands Town Centre Action Plan – is being showcased at the Lighthouse, Scotland’s Centre for Architecture+Design. Shawlands students worked with lighting designers to create a project to allow students to digitally project artworks on to the school’s facade; reinforce Shawlands Academy as a key institution in the town centre; and brighten up one of the key gateways into Shawlands.
This animated film tells you all about it: http://www.ads.org.uk/smarterplaces/news/shawlands-academy-on-the-noticed-board
Shawlands Academy Lighting Project was funded by Shawlands & Strathbungo Community Council.
The Battle of Langside (13 May 1568) may be in line to be added to twenty eight sites that currently constitute Historic Scotland’s Inventory of Scottish Battlefields. Historic Scotland is consulting on eleven battlefield sites with Langside the only one located in Glasgow. To be successful each site must be able to demonstrate its national importance with key historical events or figures, or for its physical remains and/or archaeological potential. Given that the battle took place in what is now Queen’s Park and that Mary Queen of Scots defeat led her to flee Scotland to the “protection” of her cousin Elizatheth I, one might think it should be able to win this battle.
Many local place names reflect Langside’s combatants – Moray Place, Regent Park Square and Queens Park, Square and Drive – and demonstrate the strong assocation with this historic event that took place 444 years ago. Hopefully the Strathbungo Society, Community and City Councils will all work together to get the Battle of Langside duly recognised for its importance to Scottish history and thereby increase people’s understanding of the batle and its site nearby in Queen’s Park.
