New use for former arts pavilion
Plans are underway to turn an empty pavilion into a new ice cream shop in Bathgate.
Council Executive has approved the £55,000 sale of the building on the corner of Whitburn Road and Dalling Road in Bathgate, at the entrance to Whiteside Industrial Estate.
The property was declared surplus as it is not required by the council for service delivery, and has been used for temporary storage since the arts group previously using it left in 2014.
The proposed purchaser plans to apply to change the use of the building and refurbish the premises, so it can be used as an ice cream shop.
The sale, which is subject to terms and conditions, will generate valuable income for the council, which can be reinvested in council assets. There was no community asset transfer interest in the building received at the closing date.
