PLANS for new homes on the former site of a bus depot in Glasgow's South Side have been formally submitted to the city council.

The Link Group want to build 152 flats and 34 houses on the former Larkfield Bus Depot in Govanhill.

The depot closed in 2014 and was relocated to a new purpose built facility in nearby Cathcart Road.

The Larkfield bus depot, which was a transport hub for almost a century, was demolished last year and the site has been vacant since.

Planning permission was previously granted for the redevelopment of the site in 2012. The planning permission was divided into two phases.

Phase one would see the development of a retail superstore while phase two was for offices, a care home, community facilities and a cinema.

In a planning statement for the new application The Link Group, however, said: "It is well known that market conditions have changed in the period since 2012. In order to respond to this change in market conditions, the owner of the site is now promoting an alternative comprehensive development scheme.

"Residential development is proposed for eastern part. This will occupy the majority of the former bus depot. On the smaller, western part of the site, instead of the previously approved superstore, a smaller supermarket and restaurant is now proposed. The retail and restaurant developments will be the subject of separate planning applications."

The plans will offer a mixture of one, two and three bedroom properties.

There will also be two storey terraced housing in the northern part of the site. In addition, there will be four storey flats fronting Butterbiggins Road and to the east and centre of the site.

All houses will have a dedicated parking space under the plans.

A decision is expected on the plans in May.
