Many residents have objected to the proposed development at Asda Toryglen. Many people objected the developer has avoided community consultation and scrutiny, or had concerns about the impact on local businesses in Mount Florida, litter, traffic and public health impacts. If you share these concerns please urgently contact your ward councillors to tell them. The applications are likely to go to Committee for approval next Tuesday 7th February.

  1. The applications should be considered as a single Major Development and since the applicant has not met the statutory requirements for pre-planning application consultation, the applications should be rejected as premature.
  2. The proposed development will have a detrimental impact on the sustainable, walkable Town Centres, in conflict with the City Development Plan. Planning Obligations in the form of financial support for Town Centre development would ameliorate the applications.
  3. The proposed development at this site, which is just 200 feet from Holyrood school and opposite Toryglen football centre, will have an irresponsible and detrimental impact on public health. There is already plenty of provision of unhealthy hot food takeaway, and few healthy alternatives, and further provision is unnecessary. Controls on advertising and promotions aimed at schoolchildren, plus support for local health initiatives would ameliorate the applications.
  4. Strict conditions on litter control must be imposed as part of any consent to avoid anti-social and environmental problems.
  5. Strict conditions on opening hours must be imposed as part of any consent to avoid anti-social behaviour problems.
  6. Capacity assessments of the store access junction and on the junction of Prospecthill and Aikenhead Roads should be carried out before permission may be considered.
