Industry Database

A planning application for the proposed regeneration of Firhill Basin on the Forth & Clyde Canal could result in new moorings, pontoons and bridges.

Scottish Canals have applied to Glasgow City Council for permission to create structures including 26 residential moorings, 12 floating pontoons, 75 hook-up points for temporary moorings and three pedestrian bridges at a new nature reserve behind Firhill stadium.

The application forms part of Glasgow Canal Project and Glasgow City Council’s GB£8.1m Canal and North Gateway project, which aims to enhance green space along the canal corridor between Firhill and Port Dundas and includes the newly developed Hamiltonhill Claypits Local Nature Reserve and a water management solution based around the Forth & Clyde Canal.

The reserve will include two new bridges to restore historic bridge connections across the two canal entrances to Firhill Basin whilst a new bridge is proposed across the canal on axis to Trossachs St. This will facilitate access to and from the Claypits LNR from the south west as well as improving strategic connectivity between Hamiltonhill / Possil and the West End.

The North Glasgow Integrated Water Management System (NGIWM) provides the surface water drainage solution for the regeneration of key vacant and derelict sites. It will develop blue-green “fingers” extending out from the canal into several water management areas.
