Revised plan for hundreds of new homes on the River Clyde submitted to council
Hundreds of new homes are among revised plans to redevelop a historic riverside site.
A proposal of application notice has been sent to the council for the Govan Graving Docks on the south bank of the River Clyde.
It includes up to 310 new homes along the Govan Road end of the site as well as parkland and bringing the dock back into use to repair heritage ships.

Developer New City Vision is behind the plan which has been years in the making.
It said, following initial consultation last summer, the proposals have been revised to incorporate feedback from the local community and now include a commercial unit that will serve the new and surrounding communities.
A public consultation event on the updated plans is taking place next week and another in July, for people to view and give their opinion.
Harry O’Donnell, Chairman of New City Vision, said: “We are thrilled to bring forward plans for the creation of a vibrant community at the Govan Graving Docks.
“The revised proposals are the product of our consultation with the community last summer and I am pleased that we have been able to incorporate their feedback and include a commercial space within the development.
“Forming one component of our wider vision for the site, the residential proposals sit alongside our wider regeneration project, which includes the restoration of the Dock No1 for historic ship repair, the creation of a new riverside park, and the historic pumphouse building reactivated into a venue for community use, sympathetic to the site’s heritage.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in the proposals to attend and leave their thoughts on our proposals with the project team.”
