DETAILED planning permission is being sought for a £100 million development that marks the next major phase of the regeneration of Glasgow’s waterfront.

What is known as an Approval of Matters Specified in Condition application has been lodged by Peel Lifestyle Outlets for the Glasgow Harbour Lifestyle Outlet – a 350,000 sq ft mixed-use initiative, expected to create thousands of retail and construction jobs.

It will include shops, restaurants and cafes, a waterfront promenade, a cinema and more, all designed to turn Glasgow into “a city on the river not by the river”.

Jason Pullen, managing director of Peel Lifestyle Outlets, said: “We are creating the next generation of outlet destination by delivering a balanced combination of exciting leisure and entertainment with a strong retail offering.

“The initial £100m investment... represents the next step in fulfilling the Glasgow Harbour masterplan,” he added.
