PLANNERS Asked To Extend Flats Permission Again

19 September, 2023 | Local, Planning

YET another bid to keep a long-running Port Glasgow flats plan alive is to be considered by council officials, 10 years after it was first approved.

The development is proposed for the site of fire-damaged premises and a yard last used by a glazier at 3 Highholm Street.

There would be 12 flats, with 12 parking spaces.

Inverclyde Council originally agreed to the principle of having flats there in 2013. The council agreed to extend that permission in 2017 and 2020.

Approval is now being sought to renew planning consent again for a further three years.

Officials have previously stated that they believe replacement of the damaged building would be to the benefit of the surrounding area and character in Highholm Street.

An application for detailed planning would also still need to be submitted as designs for the building have yet to be put forward for approval.
