Another plan to build a massive city- centre style housing complex in the heart of the west-end?
Otago Lane is a small, unimposing gem in the conservation area of Glasgow's West-End, with a nation-wide reputation for its independent shops, culture energy, and has been largely untouched in its 2-century history.
It is now under grave threat from developers who propose to build massive city- centre style housing complex with 163 flats and commercial units attaching onto the Otago Lane mews gable and directly opposite in the narrow cobbled lane.
Otago Lane, the last surviving hub of independent culture and life in Glasgow's West End, is under threat from a new 163 private flat and retail spaces development.
Institutions such as the Tchai-Ovna tea house, Ken Chapelle Antique Clock repairer, Voltaire and Rousseau the independent second-hand and antiquarian bookshop in Glasgow's west end have rallied together with local residents to campaign to put a halt to the development proposals which will effectively put an end to a whole life style in Glasgow's West End.
ENGAGING WITH THE COMMUNITY
