Change of use ap­proved for derelict build­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl - Dou­glas Dickie

Plan­ning of­fi­cers have given the go ahead for a derelict build­ing once la­belled a death trap to be turned into a stor­age unit.

Last week, South La­nark­shire Coun­cil con­firmed a change of use ap­pli­ca­tion and as­so­ci­ated al­ter­ations for 5 Burn Place in Cam­bus­lang had been ap­proved.

The build­ing is listed as a “va­cant for­mer ho­tel.”

Its new use is set to be stor­age and distri­bu­tion for a vegetable whole­salers.

In Fe­bru­ary 2014, we re­ported that busi­nesses be­side the build­ing said it had turned into a drink­ing den for gangs of youths.

And they feared the build­ing could col­lapse with young drinkers inside.

They also said sev­eral fires had been started in the empty shell and there were con­cerns one of these could spread to neigh­bour­ing units.

One busi­ness owner told the Re­former they had suf­fered a break in and they be­lieved the per­pe­tra­tors were hid­ing out in the build­ing.

The ap­pli­cant is listed as a Mr Aziz Rizwan. Com­pa­nies House list him as the sole di­rec­tor of County Foods Whole­sale Ltd, whose ad­dress is given as 5 Burn Place. The com­pany was in­cor­po­rated in Jan­uary this year.

Other ap­pli­ca­tions given the go ahead by the coun­cil at the same time were:

Erec­tion of tim­ber bound­ary fence, 4 Sycamore Way, Drum­sagard Vil­lage, Cam­bus­lang. Ap­pli­cant, Mrs Laura Hodge.
