Schools saved with Dennistoun demolition go-ahead
November 18 2019
Glasgow City Council planners have lent their consent to the partial demolition of a historic B-listed Dennistoun school to enable the delivery of 18 homes.
The work would see Barony Homes with Jewitt & Wilkie Architects retain the façade of the disused Golfhill Primary while building a new build element to the rear. A former janitors house will also be converted into a standalone home.
In a planning statement the applicant wrote: “While it has been deemed financially unviable for the retention of the full school, our proposal will maintain and preserve the main elevations and towers of what is an important historical building in the Dennistoun area, that left in its current state is likely to deteriorate past any chance of being rescued.”
A new build component of the application constituting a further 133 flats on the school grounds is still pending approval but is considered to be essential by the applicant to fund conservation work.
First built in 1902 by the Glasgow School Board the building has languished on the Buildings at Risk Register since 2010.
