Demolition may lead to car park
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.”
