Bishopbriggs is set for 32m makeover (Evening Times)



AN ambitious 32m plan has been drawn up to transform Bishopbriggs town
centre.


Manchester-based Muse Developments wants to build shops, housing, a
new civic space, a care home and town centre car park.

The outline planning application, which has been lodged with East
Dunbartonshire Council, also involves demolishing school buildings and
relocating St Matthew's Church.

Muse Developments' regional director, Steve Turner, said the company
was confident the proposals would revitalise the area and deliver a town
centre that worked for both residents and businesses.

He said: "Our reputation for the successful delivery of city and town
centre regeneration projects like this across the UK has been built
through gaining a clear knowledge of what works, and understanding the
needs of everyone involved.

"This is a fantastic development that will revitalise Bishopbriggs town
centre and potentially attract new jobs and investment to the town. We
have brought the community and local politicians into our thinking for the
project and the new submission reflects those discussions."

The 16-acre site is located in the grounds of the existing Bishopbriggs
High School and Triangle shopping centre. It is bounded by Kirkintilloch
Road, South Crosshill Road, Cleddens Court and the railway line.

The plan involves a large store and range of small to medium-sized
shops, landscaped areas, high-quality houses and a new road.

The High School would be relocated to a site within the grounds of
Thomas Muir High School on Wester Cleddens Road, and the school
sports hall would be kept, potentially as a site for a medical centre or
nursery.

Well they can F*** right off with that...
It's bad enough trying to get access to the cross without all that malarky.
They actually have tenements there with no front close access.

I grew up in Bishopbriggs and it's really sad to see the transformations that have taken place over the years.  Every time I go out there  some new building has popped up that looks totally out of place.

sorry to drag up an old thread

The new school, Bishopbriggs Academy, has opened this year and both Bishopbriggs High School and Thomas Muir High School are lying derelict. Thomas Muir is due to be demolished within the next few months but i'm unsure what's happening to Bishopbriggs High.

I may have a look at the weekend and see if there's anything there of interest.

They knocked down my old school (Turnbull High) a couple of months ago and it's now been replaced with a swanky, new, modern building which was built behind the site of the original building.

A lot of memories went down with the demolition of Turnbull.  

The new Thomas Muir High School building is an absolute beast.  It's massive compared to the old one!!  But I suppose it needs to be as they've merged with Bishy high haven't they?

An old thread I know, but had to post, it's sad all this progress, I started TMH when it opened in 1978, we were the inaugural first year, with a second year coming from Bishy High, the school was empty, but it was great we had small classes never more than 20 we didn't realise at the time how lucky we were, can't believe it barely lasted 30 years.
