Glasgow Partick pub plans rooftop terrace dining area refused by council
A popular Partick pub’s plans for a new roof terrace and lounge have been turned down by Glasgow City Council.
The plans, submitted by Paisley-based MJK Architects on behalf of Deoch an Dorus on Dumbarton Road, would have seen the pub use its flat-roofed area to build a ‘mainly glazed dining room and lounge’.
The new first-floor lounge, accessible by stairs from the ground floor, would have had enough room to accommodate 34 punters at eight tables.
In refusing the application, the council’s planning department said plans to extend the terrace would ‘adversely affect’ residents living in the building next door through ‘increased noise, activity and pollution potential light late at night”.

The decision noted: “The proposed extension to the covered and glazed roof terrace of the existing public house would be immediately adjacent to the residential apartments on the upper floors of the neighboring building and, due to its location in close proximity to the residential apartments , it is considered that the proposal would adversely affect their residential comfort due to increased noise, activity and potential light pollution late at night.”
The town’s planning department also added that “due to its design and materials” the proposed terrace extension would be “an unsympathetic addition that would not respect the era, style and character. architectural aspect of the building on which it would be located, to the detriment of the appearance and visual amenity of the property and the street scene.”
