The signatories of this petition (the undersigned) ask Glasgow City Council to insist that the plans for development on the site formerly known as Broadcasting House 30 Queen Margaret Drive Glasgow be amended to protect the Kelvin Walkway, and the views of the river bank from the Walkway and the Queen Margaret Drive Bridge.
The River Kelvin and the Kelvin Walkway is an area of outstanding landscape and natural habitat running through the West End of Glasgow. It is important not only for this but as an internationally-recognised symbol of the regeneration of Glasgow from the years of pollution and environmental damage. It demonstrates the commitment of Glasgow City Council through many years to make Glasgow a better place, and this achievement is recognised both nationally and internationally.
The planning application to develop the former BBC site on Queen Margaret Drive, Glasgow, threatens to damage the landscape and the appreciation of the listed buildings on this site.
We request that the plans are not approved in their current form, but are amended to respect and protect The Kelvin Walkway, and the views of the river bank from the Walkway and from the Queen Margaret Drive bridge, for the enjoyment of all. If this is not possible, then for the Planning Application to be withdrawn and a new application submitted which enhances the architectural heritage of Glasgow and safeguards the unique landscape and environment of The Kelvin Walkway.
