Completing the Masterplan for Woodlands Hill

Our role

  • The site is located within the Park Conservation Area, Glasgow, and was planned to accommodate residential development in the 1855 masterplan by Charles Wilson.
  • However, development never materialised and it was sold to adjacent residents, then utilised as a school playground, before falling into disuse.
  • It was then acquired by Glasgow City Council in 1981 for residential development. A series of applications thereafter failed to deliver development and Expresso Property was identified in 2014 as the preferred bidder for the site following a design competition.
  • Turley provided Planning and Heritage & Townscape services.


  • The proposed development will complete the Charles Wilson Masterplan in a respectful manner and will present a sympathetic elevation as a continuation
    of the A-listed Park Quadrant terrace.
  • Due to significant public objection, particularly from local residents, the proposal was heard at a public hearing. Development was supported by Members, who agreed with the officer recommendation that “As a piece of contemporary architecture, the proposed building is a distinctly sensitive response to a site which is defined by its context amongst the listed buildings of Woodlands Hill.”
