Development plans will be on display at newly scheduled meetings.

Local residents will be given more time to share their thoughts on the development of the former Victoria Infirmary site on the southside.

Sanctuary Group has extended the consultation dates to give additional opportunities for community feedback. The consultation events that were due to take place on March 23 and 25 have been postponed and will now take place on Thursday, April 20 and Saturday, April 22.

These will take the form of two informal drop-in sessions so local residents can call in at the time that is most convenient for them.

An exhibit of the proposed planning design will be on display at these sessions and representatives from Sanctuary and the design team, Collective Architecture, will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss the plans.

The events will be taking place at Langside Library on Sinclair Drive, Glasgow – running from 2pm till 7pm on Thursday, April 20, and 10am till 3pm on Saturday, April 22.

Peter Martin, Group Director - Development at Sanctuary Group, said: “We have always understood how important the Victoria is to local people and have extended the consultation period to give people more time to share their views.

‘We have been hugely impressed by the interest from the local community in this development and the more involvement we have the better the resulting development will be. It’s vital we consider as much feedback as possible before producing updated proposals.

“We are already looking forward to sharing these proposals with the community and hope that lots of people take the opportunity to come along and view it at these meetings.”
