This former, B listed, schoolhouse is situated in the Crosshill area of the city approximately 2.5 miles from the city centre within a predominantly residential area. The site is bound by Holyrood Secondary School to the south and east with 4 storey tenemental flats to the west. The property is ideally positioned on Dixon Road to take advantage of a wide range of local amenities and excellent transport links including Crosshill train station which is 0.2 miles away.
Site description

The subject property is a two storey brick built former schoolhouse with a slated roof. The internal accommodation includes four apartments, kitchen and bathroom. This detached property is accessed from Dixon Road and is located within a plot with limited garden space.

The property is in a poor condition and will require extensive general maintenance and upgrading works both internally and externally. The building is not safe to enter as a result ofextensive dry rot throughout the rooms and stairway, together with the build up of pigeon guano meaning that only external viewings can be undertaken.

The City Development Plan does not identify land use zones to direct particular types of development. Instead, Policy CDP1 Placemaking encourages development to be informed by a place based approach, which means new development should be responsive to its context and seek to build upon the benefits of proximity. It is critical that new development is compatible with existing and future uses. The council is seeking interest from a restorative purchaser to return the Category B Listed Building to a dwelling house. The following adopted City Development Plan policies of particular relevance to this development opportunity include:-
cdp 1 – The Placemaking Principle and cdp 2 – Sustainable Spatial Strategy
Supplementary Planning Guidance SG1 Placemaking -
cdp 9 – Historic Environment Supplementary Planning Guidance SG9 Historic Environment -
cdp 11 – Sustainable Transport Supplementary Planning Guidance SG11 Sustainable Transport -

All policies require to be read in conjunction with the relevant supplementary guidance which outlines the detailed requirements of the planning authority. Further information on the City Development Plan can be found on the Glasgow City Council Website -
