 Bellgrove meat market masterplan beefed up
Glasgow City Council has earmarked City Deal cash to help make the city centre’s barren eastern fringe a more attractive place to be, with new infrastructure and public realm work planned in support of potential mixed-use development on the site of the former Bellgrove Meat Market.

Conceived to plug the gap between Dennistoun and the city centre the project will rejuvenate a swathe of vacant ground south of Duke Street while retaining surviving character buildings as part of a multi-phase masterplan.

Still at an early stage the scheme will include partial remediation of the land which will then be released to market as smaller serviced plots for phased development as hoped for investment floods in.

To speed this process along indicative plans call for a programme of tree planting to frame individual blocks with planted ‘rain gardens’ enhancing the biodiversity of the area.

High quality flush granite kerbs, paving and cycle tracks will also be introduced, along with pre-cast concrete benches.

Today 13th December received a survey form inviting views on potential future use of the Meat Market Sheds on Bellgrove Street. Also asked to complete the survey form and return to Factor- Molendinar Park Housing BEFORE Monday 17th December.
Sad to say not much of an opportunity for consultation given that the sheds back on to the private car park entrance. Local property owners and residents had to pay a substantial sum to install a gate on the lane access from Bellgrove Street to try to reduce the access of undesirables using the area to take drugs and discard needles.
What assurances can the various groups involved provide for the owner occupiers and residents that their safety and well being will be considered and we the locals will be consulted and involved .
