Arnold Clark consults community on dealership redevelopment plans

Arnold Clark has invited locals to comment on its re-worked plans for redeveloping a historic dealership in Glasgow after its initial designs sparked the formation of a protest group.

Its original plan to demolish Botanic Gardens Garage, which dates from 1906, were withdrawn last October.

That followed 150 complaints from nearby residents, who formed a campaign group which successfully lobbied to get the building protected. It is now on the Scottish Civic Trust's Buildings at Risk register.

Now Arnold Clark is giving the public a chance to scrutinise its revised plans, which will retain the building's fascia, and give feedback before they are submitted to the authority on June 28.

The group has also taken advice from Historic Scotland and Glasgow City Council.
