A GOVANHILL gap site could finally be filled eight years after being turned into a community garden.

The space at 85 Westmoreland Street had attracted fly tipping and anti-social behaviour and so was turned into a temporary greenspace by Glasgow City Council.

Now an application has been submitted for a five-storey block of 17 flats.

Council bosses said at the time it could be three to five years before any development took place.

The land is privately owned.

City planners will now consider the application.
