South Dalmarnock

The South Dalmarnock Masterplan provides a vision that aims to unlock the development potential of the area by adopting long term and sustainable approaches to infrastructure development and in particular urban drainage issues.

It covers the area from Rutherglen Bridge in the west through the Clyde Gateway Road, Dunn Street, and Dalmarnock Road to Dalmarnock Bridge in the east and bounded by the river Clyde. The Masterplan was prepared in partnership with Glasgow City Council (GCC) and overseen by a Project Board comprising Clyde Gateway, GCC, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), Scottish Water (SW), the Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network Partnership (GCVGNP) and private landowners. The Framework was also the subject of extensive community engagement in 2009/2010.

The Masterplan resulted in the following development activities:

• The SMART Bridge
• Dalmarnock Station
• Police Scotland
• Key Routes & Spaces works
• Remediation of the former gas works and power station sites
• Incorporation of the revised Spectrum developments
• Finalisation of the area required for sustainable urban drainage (SUDs)
• Demolitions and site clearance

In early 2019, it had been identified that a further refresh of the Masterplan was required to support market interest and to reflect recent works carried out by CG and private sector developments. Specifically, this refresh considered the construction and revised development activities in the plan including:

• Carstairs Street enabling infrastructure
• Colvend Street enabling infrastructure, landscaping and SUDs
• Purifier Studios care and repair works
• Keepmoat developments proposals
• Dalmarnock Hybrid build out by Sharc Energy Systems
• Demolitions and site clearance
