Iceni Projects are providing strategic planning consultancy services to support Moda Living in the redevelopment of the former Strathclyde police headquarters in Glasgow’s City Centre. The site itself occupies an entire city block in this prominent location. The proposed development includes 433 PRS apartments with associated amenities, underground car parking as well as usable outdoor space including roof terraces and a public courtyard.

Iceni Projects led the collation of the planning application submission which included a number of technical studies given the sensitive urban location on the outskirts of a conservation area and in close proximity to Category A listed buildings.

Due to the scale of the project, it was deemed a “major” development under the relevant Regulations and the statutory 12-week pre-application period applied. Throughout this process, Iceni Projects ensured the pre-application stage aligned with the requirements of the Regulations and included the organisation of the main public consultation exhibition as well as numerous meetings with key stakeholders and the city council to ensure a compliant submission.

As PRS is relatively new to the Glasgow market, one of the key roles of the Scotland planning team was to negotiate the city council’s planning policy which does not account for PRS development. Therefore, the team led the discussions with the city council to ensure the necessary design elements were retained to ensure the viability of the proposal. Such issues included negotiation of amenity space, single / dual aspect ratios, car parking as well as apartment size requirements.
