A former council depot in the Southside could be set to become the site of a new housing development.

Clarkston-based company John Wright Properties Ltd (JWP) has applied to Glasgow City Council for planning permission to build a residential development of 32 properties on land at Barrhead Road.

The homes will be for private rent.

JWP has completed and is currently developing properties for private rent in the Glasgow area. The properties are retained by JWP and rented out at the market rate depending on the location of the development.

The development at Barrhead Road will be part of its growing portfolio of properties.

JWP says it will feature a variety of house types and sizes of accommodation to meet local housing needs

The site was previously owned by Glasgow City Council and used as a ground maintenance depot until 2013.

It was purchased by JWP in 2014, with the existing stone building demolished later the same year.
