Scottish Canals ownership at Applecross Basin on the Forth & Clyde Canal extends to over 35 acres of land with huge potential for site by site regeneration in partnership with ISIS, a joint venture between Scottish Canals, Muse Developments and Igloo (the regeneration fund of Aviva).
We propose to create a new water based community in the canal basin at Firhill of up to 18 houseboats in a horseshoe arrangement. This is a fantastic site which is currently under-utilised and the proposals will greatly enhance the immediate area and contribute to a sense of community and place whilst enhancing the Canal setting.
Glasgows canals have evolved from a linked network of industrial site into an incredibly important social and leisure resourse for the City. This evolution requires a new look at how we use our waterways and bring the life and activity which will secure the waterways for future generations.
