Approval sought for demolition of B-listed Belvidere Hospital
December 5 2013demolish Glasgow's B listed Belvidere Hospital to make way for 22 new homes.
Developer Kier Homes, owner of the London Road plot, wish to clear the site in order to build a mix of semi-detached and terraced housing.
Currently listed high risk on the buildings at risk register the sandstone ashlar administration block was designed by John Carrick by 1887 - but is now in very poor condition.
The plans have already elicited complaints however with Andrew Montguire observing: “I object to this as it seems listed buildings are being demolished for no good reason other than to build houses.
“The listed buildings have been listed for a reason, not for some housing developer to decide to build houses!!!! There’s plenty of vacant land to build on without demolishing listed buildings.”
