Petitioning The Scottish Government

The Scottish Government: Call in Any Future Planning Applications for Govan Graving Docks

Govan Graving Docks is the only remaining historic dock site in Glasgow and is currently under threat of commercial redevelopment.

We call upon the Scottish Government to call in any future planning applications for the site and to reject any planning applications that are based on housing or commercial development. Instead the dry docks should be preserved so that they can be restored to working order as part of a maritime & leisure park and heritage centre. The docks should also be maintained in a condition that would allow them to become working dry docks again should the need arise in the future.

Govan Graving Docks is a Category A listed site and is on the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland. It is described in the register as being "without parallel in Scotland".
