A planning application for the vacant ground at 47 Nithsdale Street has been submitted, and can be viewed at Glasgow City Council’s Planning Portal, using reference 23/01662/FUL. The application is titled “Use of land for siting of steel containers for use as cafe and hot food takeaway (Sui generis), includes installation of flue extract, with external seating area and erection of fence.”
Whatever your views, you can respond before the deadline of 25 September. You can find some useful guidance on responding to planning applications at Planning Law Blog.
It is worth noting that this vacant site sits within the conservation area, although, oddly, the adjacent buildings (World Foods, etc) do not (there is a map on the BungoBlog).
