Some residents have not received written notification. Planning are very keen to be advised of anyone not receiving a neighbour notification, especially if they own a section of the lane. (You can find that information in your title deeds on the map.) This could invalidate the whole application. If you know of anyone who has not received a letter, they please advise the planning oficer ASAP.

Hayburn Lane Update: Planning application not submitted, yet, by Imagine Projects.

The proposed development consisting of 12 mews houses will cover the whole area of the land between Hayburn Lane and the railway fence. This means that all trees, shrubs and greenery on that plot will disappear. The proposed dwellings will have no gardens, but each will have a courtyard, a terrace and a double garage with access from the lane. The plans show a turning point behind no 2 Hayburn Crescent for vehicles and the lane widened to 6m width.

A meeting with the developers took place last week and the plans outlined above were presented. With three representatives from Hayburn Crescent and one from Friends of Glasgow West Conservation Area present, the purpose was to find out as much as possible at this stage, and to inform about the strong opinion against the development that have been expressed so far, by people in the community.

Concerns we raised were in short:

This is by no means all objections that can be raised but a few. The meeting ended with the information that Imagine Projects will hold back a few weeks before they submit the application. We have later learned that the developer has had a pre-planning meeting with the council and there were issues raised then as well.

We don’t have a new date, yet, for when the planning application will be submitted!

In the meantime:

Keep on spreading information about the survey and fill it in, if you haven't done so yet!

Responses to the survey will be submitted to the council as part of Haycra’s representation regarding the planning application and only the council will get your contact details, if you so wish. They need them to be able to respond to your views regarding the planning proposal, otherwise your say will not count. Paper copies can be picked up from Eva Bolander, at 4a Hayburn Crescent and Moira McDade at 7 Hayburn Crescent.

When the planning application is submitted will we have at the most 3 weeks before a decision is made.

Hayburn Lane Planning Proposal. (Updated 17/9/08)

A letter from a property developer regarding Hayburn Lane has been distributed the last few days and they will submit a planning application for twelve mews houses by the the end of the month. After the planning proposal formally has been submitted to the council, we will have either 14 or 21 days to make representation to the council i. e. to submit our comments to the planning application.

Letter from Imagine Projects Ltd, 12 Sept 2008 ( pdf file).

It is HayCRA's stand that any building activities in the lane will substantially change the ameniety of the area, when it comes to green space, wildlife, privacy and access through the back lane. We will work together with other groups with interest in the area, such as Friends of Dyce Park, and Hayburn Action Group, to make representation on the planning application, but we can not make this formally until it has been submitted and we have seen the application.

It is important that as many as possible make their views countable in this planning decision!!! And we will not have much time after the proposal has been submitted.

Representation on planning applications can be by made by members of the public, formal bodies and associations. Glasgow City Council have a fact sheet 'Have your Say' which you can download here in pdf format:

Have your Say. Advice on how to make comments on a planning application (pdf file).

Can you help?

Have you got experience in planning procedures? Are you familiar med the Glasgow City Plan? Can you help with distributing/collecting letters and information? Do you have the right contacts?

We will need help with making representation against this planning application, and all hands are welcome! Please contact HayCRA on phone 0141 5868725 (Eva Bolander) or 0141 5767007 (Moira McDade).

Action plan

We will have an initial taskforce meeting this week and subsequently distribute information in the closes. If you have expertise knowledge, please get in touch with Eva Bolander, asap.
