I went along to see the final proposals on 25 March.

Essentially, this is a housing development in and around the old drydock itself, although I acknowledge some of the buildings within the dock would be refurbished and may be brought back into use, e.g. as a café, etc. The docks themselves would be used for leisure pursits.

There looks to be a fifteen storey block of flats planned for the canting basin end.

There are however other vacant sites in Govan which could be used for housing.

Altogether, it is a bit of a disaster and indeed a lost opportunity to properly preserve what I think is an A-listed site.
