Sanctuary Homes has submitted its masterplan, planning application and listed building application to redevelop the former site of Glasgow’s Victoria Infirmary.

Sanctuary wants to create 413 new flats, plus offices and retail units, on the site in the city’s Langside. Sanctuary’s plans were developed by Glasgow-based Collective Architecture following community consultations.

Sanctuary’s proposals retain Battlefield Road’s iconic Nightingale Pavilions and feature public realm areas, including an improved pedestrian route through the site to Queen’s Park.

If Sanctuary’s plans were approved in their current form, around 310 of the homes would be sold. Approximately 100 would be available for affordable housing, subject to Glasgow City Council grant approval.

Peter Martin, Sanctuary’s Group Director of Development, said: “We are delighted to submit our planning application, masterplan and listed building application for one of Glasgow’s most prestigious and historic sites.

“We have taken account of the views and comments from more than 600 members of the public who attended our six community consultation events during February, March and April.”

The applications and supporting information can be viewed on the Glasgow City Council website.
