Location
The sites are located within the Parkhead area in the east end of Glasgow, approximately 3 miles from
Glasgow City Centre. The main access to the sites from the City Centre is via the A89 Gallowgate, or
Duke Street, both of which comprise main arterial routes which run through the east end. The sites are
strategically placed, with connections to the M8 motorway at Junction 14 and the M74 at Junction 1A,
both being a short distance away. The nearest railway station is Duke Street (approx. 0.5 miles) whilst there
are numerous bus services which pass close to both sites.

Site 1 has an extensive frontage to the south of Duke Street and is formed in a mixed area which includes

Street to the east.
Site 2 is located at the eastern extent of the Forge Retail Park where occupiers include B&Q, Argos, Sports
Direct and Next. The site is located immediately to the south of the railway and north of Biggar Street. The
site enjoys direct access from the service road which serves the Forge Retail Park, which in turn is accessed

The sites are shown outlined in red on the attached plan. They have formerly been in industrial use and
have been partially cleared awaiting redevelopment.
The sites have lain vacant over a period of time and some ground clearance may be required depending

bound by brick and stone walls and mixed fencing, with the southern boundary of Site 1 and northern
boundary of Site 2 being the railway which splits the two sites.

Planning
The current statutory Plan is the City Plan 2.
Site 1 is allocated for ‘Business and Industry’ under Policy DEV3.
The areas designated ‘INDUSTRY AND BUSINESS’ are the focus for industrial and business activity in
the City. They will be retained primarily for uses that fall within Use Classes 4 ‘Business’, 5 ‘General
Industrial’ and 6 ‘Storage or Distribution’ of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) (Scotland)
Order 1997. The Council will support proposals that modernise the industrial or business floorspace
or enhance the physical environment and infrastructure within these areas. Proposals for uses outwith
Classes 4, 5 and 6 will be considered against the criteria identified in policy IB 5: Non Industrial or
Non-Business Uses in Industrial and Business Areas.
Site 2 is allocated for ‘Other retail and commercial’ uses under policy DEV7.

The areas designated ‘OTHER RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL’ provide commercial services to the general
public at out-of-centre and edge-of-centre locations, i.e. outwith the defined areas of Town Centres and
other traditional shopping centres. These are substantial areas that may be considered suitable for a
variety of uses falling within Class 1 (Shops), Class 2 (Financial, Professional and Other Services), Class
3 (Food and Drink), Class 4 (Business), Class 11 (Assembly and Leisure) and related sui generis uses,
