The extensive study looked at all development opportunities throughout the region of Haghill, Glasgow. It incorporated a diverse mix of proposals for gap sites & renewals to the existing urban fabric to the north - including the site of the derelict B listed Haghill Primary School - a prominent regional landmark that is rapidly being lost due to ongoing neglect. To the south, large swathes of brownfield land, the infilled route of the former railway line & land previously identified as being too steep to develop economically were all explored carefully. New mixed tenure housing, a new major cycle route, community allotments & 'eco park' were developed to a detailed specification & costed. The proposals are ambitious & will no doubt take decades to fully realize. Work has already begun in earnest on the eco park proposal however & it is hoped with future investment, that the potential within this area of the east end continues to be realised.
