PLANS to demolish a landmark building and create 450 homes will go on show to the public.

Families living near The National Savings and Investment Bank, in Pollok, in the South Side of Glasgow are to get their say on draft proposals.

House builder Persimmon is to hold a public exhibition on plans for the 70-acre site in Boydstone Road.

The exhibition will be held in Pollok Community Centre on Thursday September 4 and locals have been invited to share their views on plans.

The building, beside the Silverburn Shopping Centre, could be flattened with 600 workers moved to two separate sites - a main office in Glasgow city centre and a mail processing operation in East Kilbride.

The sale of the land is expected to swell the Treasury's coffers by up to £10 million.

Members of the public have been asked to submit their views to the housebuilder, either during the exhibition - which is being held between 1pm and 7pm - or in writing no later than September 18.

Persimmon sales manager Sharon Spinelli previously confirmed the plans.

She said: "Persimmon Homes West Scotland is currently carrying out surveys and investigation works to support a detailed planning application.

"Persimmon is targeting a site start in the spring of 2015 and is looking to provide 450 two, three, four and five- bedroom homes for sale."

Meanwhile, a spokesman for National Savings and Investments (NS&I) said the sale of the site could be completed by June 2015.

Some local councillors have already expressed their support for the proposals.

Councillor Rashid Hussain, who represents Greater Pollok, said: "It's housing that we require. The area is one of the fastest growing for young families.

"It will obviously boost the local economy and create jobs too. I welcome this development."

The Evening Times revealed earlier this year that Silverburn's owners have submitted a planning application to expand the centre on to a site behind the bank building, on the opposite side of the M77.
