Council to dispose of former schoolhouses in Broomhill and Robroyston and site in Battlefield

Glasgow City Council has approved the disposal of the former schoolhouses at Broomhill Primary School, Beechwood Drive and Gadburn Primary School, at Rockfield Road, and a small site adjacent to 8 Prospecthill Road.

Disposal to housing associations will add to housing stock
The former schoolhouse of Broomhill Primary School - a three-bedroom 1970s detached bungalow with driveway and garden space, pictured above - will be disposed to Partick Housing Association.  The building has been declared surplus to the council's property needs.

The former Gadburn Primary schoolhouse - a three-bedroom 1980s detached bungalow with front and rear gardens - will be disposed to Wheatley Homes Glasgow Limited. The building was declared surplus, and its disposal is in line with the council's housing policy objectives and will generate a capital receipt for the local authority after negotiations are concluded.

The ownership of the small piece of land (0.027 acres) to be disposed of adjacent to 8 Prospecthill Road will be transferred to the owner of that address.  This piece of land was formed when Battlefield Road was expanded leaving behind a small wedge of land between the pedestrian walkway on Battlefield Road and the property.  This land was subsequently absorbed into the land surrounding the property after the current owner purchased the home over 20 years ago.  There appeared to be no defining boundary between the subject and adjoining garden of 8 Prospecthill Road, leading the owner to assume this land was part of the curtilage of their property.

The disposal - subject to negotiation - aligns with council policy related to such action in terms of extending residential gardens or extending business premises.
