________________________________________

Otago Lane is a small, unimposing gem in the conservation area of Glasgows West-End, with a nation-wide reputation for its independent shops, culture energy, and has been largely untouched in its 2-century history. It is now under grave threat from developers who propose to build massive city- centre style housing complex with 163 flats and commercial units attaching onto the Otago Lane mews gable and directly opposite in the narrow cobbled lane.

Otago Lane, the last surviving hub of independent culture and life in Glasgows West End, is under threat from a new 163 private flat and retail spaces development.


Institutions such as the Tchai-Ovna tea house, Ken Chapelle Antique Clock repairer, Voltaire and Rousseau the independent second-hand and antiquarian bookshop in Glasgows west end have rallied together with local residents to campaign to put a halt to the development proposals which will effectively put an end to a whole life style in Glasgows West End.


The first half of this video feature covers the main buildings development proposal with interviews with representatives from the developer's "community engagement team" and architecs. The video covers aspects of the alterations to the houses on Otago Street , the widening of the lane, the new residential "Drum Block" situated on the site of Tchai Ovna Tea Garden. And the landscaping on the bank of the Kelvin. The proposal is estimated to take 18 months to complete.


The second half features local tradespersons and residents voicing their concerns and opinions of the development. and how it will impact on their lives and the surrounding area.

Planning proposals have already been lodged ....
