De­mo­li­tion may lead to car park

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THE de­mo­li­tion of a Glen­rothes build­ing could help end park­ing chaos on sur­round­ing streets, it has been claimed.

Coun­cil­lor Bill Brown, chair­man of the Glen­rothes area com­mit­tee, said de­mol­ish­ing the town’s for­mer po­lice sta­tion could al­low for a car park to be cre­ated for staff at Fife House.

His call fol­lows long­stand­ing con­cerns from res­i­dents i n the South Parks area of the town about the num­ber of coun­cil em­ploy­ees park­ing on res­i­den­tial streets while at­tend­ing work.

With the coun­cil close to pur­chas­ing the site, Mr Brown said: “I un­der­stand the sale is go­ing through and all of the op­tions are be­ing stud­ied for the site.

“One idea is that it could be de­mol­ished and the land used as a tem­po­rary car park for coun­cil em­ploy­ees.”

Ron­nie Hair, prop­erty in­vest­ment and devel­op­ment man­ager at the coun­cil, said: “We’re still in the process of buy­ing the site but hope to con­clude the sale very soon.”
