Hundreds of homes can be built on land next to the River Clyde after developers received the green light.

Swan Group has been given permission by Glasgow City Council to build 151 flats on Newhall Street.

The company’s managing director Phil McGinlay said the development will “revitalise” the area.

Plans for the site, at the junction of Newhall Street and Main Street, next to Glasgow Green, were submitted in January last year.

Mr McGinlay said: “Swan Group’s Newhall development is set to revitalise an area in Glasgow’s east end which will offer residents unrivalled, safe access to the city centre.

“Not only will the 151 flats be positioned next to the River Clyde walkway, they are also right next to Glasgow Green offering a traffic free route through to the heart of the city.

“We look forward to delivering more high-quality affordable homes for the workers and families who are integral to the future of Glasgow city.”
