Glasgow City Council Approve Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice
Plans for a new £18 m hospice at Bellahouston Park were approved on 21 May by Glasgow City Council. The planning application for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice for the site at Bellahouston Park was decided at a meeting of the council’s planning committee.
A campaign to raise £15 m for the project has already accumulated £3 m. In addition to enhancing existing services for adults, the new purpose-built facility will also encompass a specialist palliative care service for young people aged 15 and above for the first time.
Every year the hospice receives around 1000 new referrals for patients and families. The hospice site will be in the boundaries of Bellahouston nursery in the park. Designed by NORD Architecture, the centre will cover 5800sqm over three floors and will include a 14-bed in-patient unit, a day service, outpatients unit, education, administration and clinical offices.

Council Backs New Homes for City Hospice
Glasgow City Council today backed plans to establish a new home for a vital city hospice next to Bellahouston Park.
Members agreed to make a site to the east of the public park available to the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.
The land is currently used by the council as a depot and nursery, which is scheduled to close as part of a service reform programme. The hospice, which is rapidly outgrowing its current home at Carlton Place, has been searching for a suitable site since announcing plans to develop a new building earlier this year. In addition to enhancing existing adult services, the planned new, larger hospice will include a specialist service for young people for the first time.
Leader of Glasgow City Council, Cllr Gordon Matheson said: “The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice is an inspiring centre of excellence in the care of people of all ages who are facing life-limiting illnesses.
“Glasgow is rightly proud of this service and owes its staff and patients all the support, encouragement and friendship it can muster.
“As we reform council services and the way we work changes, there is a shift in what kind of property we need, where and even how we use it.
“I’m very aware that those operational changes will, sometimes, create opportunities for other interests in the city. Where they are good for Glasgow, as the Hospice undoubtedly is, we will do whatever we can to help.”
The depot site lies immediately north of Dumbreck Road and is currently surrounded by a brick wall, fencing and mature landscaping.
It has excellent links to the M8, M73 and the M74 and Dumbreck Road is a principal bus route.
As a functional depot, the site is not accessible to the public and has not been part of the public amenity of the park for approximately a century.
The council’s Executive Committee agreed in principle to support the relocation and instructed officers to begin work on a detailed report, to go before members in the New Year.
