Development update – Kelbourne Street


On Wednesday 6th December we held a Public Information Event at North Kelvinside Primary School to update the local community about plans to develop 134 PBSA beds on our site at 10 Kelbourne Street.

Building Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) helps to ease pressure on the wider rental market which is also struggling to cope with demand. According to Glasgow University’s own data, student numbers have increased by almost 40% over 5 years – that’s over 10,000 additional students.

Whenever we embark on a new development we feel it’s important to engage with the local community where we can and provide an opportunity to meet with the team behind Kelvin Properties, to help address any questions they had, and to hear more about our development proposals.

In the lead up, we distributed an event leaflet to over 800 properties and also made sure the Community Council were informed and were pleased to welcome over 20 people on the night.

We are now finalising our plans for the site and intend to lodge a Detailed Planning Application in the near future.
