‘Privileged elites more interested in saving building than community,’ lawyers claim
Residents and business owners barred from returning to their properties after the June fire at the Glasgow School of Art are considering legal action against Kier, Glasgow City Council and the art school itself.
A safety cordon prevents access to 33 homes and 55 businesses. It was erected following the June 15 blaze which gutted the grade A-listed Mackintosh building for the second time.

Govan Law Centre, a local not-for-profit legal practice, said it had held a meeting with representatives of Sauchiehall Street Inner Cordon Businesses and is looking into a public interest litigation.
