Anderston demolition

Postby toomse » Thu Apr 23, 2009 12:01 pm

Sanctuary Housing have employed a series of dirty trick tactics over the last couple of years to acquire the land for this project from the present home owners. Although a building contract was awarded recently the case is still ongoing in the courts.

I can still remember when this area was filled with tenements, many of them were beginning to get demolished. My father's family were from the Anderston area and they moved to Garthamlock - just next door! Once the new houses were built in the area, they were encouraged to return. Most of them did and they lived to regret it, they hated the clinical concrete place and never knew half their neighbours. In the old village they claim they knew everyone, but then again, knowing the old man's side of the family they probably did.

What strikes me is the same arguments about demolition this time over were the same as the last time. How history repeats itself.

heard that the last owner left in this block got a nasty fright late one Sunday night a few weeks ago when the block next door collapsed into a pile of rubble

The block didn't actually collapse did it? I thought it was a controlled demolition.
