Our planning officer Paul Beswick had a meeting on 28th of August with the developers for St. Josephs on Gilmore Place.

Perhaps better known locally as ‘Little Sisters of the Poor’ having sold the site for development they are any thing but poor now.

Unfortunately it looks Tollcross will be all the poorer for the Sisters moving out as the site will be developed for student housing, and not affordable homes for long term residents.

Below is a pdf of some notes from the meeting Paul took so you can see what is about to come through the planning system.
