Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

Farme­cross Hall in Ruther­glen could be brought back into use.

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, which owns the build­ing, says it has re­cently been ap­proached by busi­nesses and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions in­ter­ested in tak­ing on the prop­erty.

The coun­cil has since invited all those with an eye on the prop­erty to ex­press in­ter­est be­fore a clos­ing date of Au­gust 18.

Frank McCaf­ferty, head of prop­erty ser­vices, said: “The prop­erty at Farmeloan Road, Ruther­glen has not been in use for some con­sid­er­able time.

“How­ever, there has been ten­ta­tive in­ter­est by a num­ber of small busi­nesses and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions in re­cent months.

“The prop­erty has not been placed with es­tate agents and at this stage the coun­cil is not seek­ing for­mal of­fers to lease or buy.

“The ad­vert is seek­ing to as­cer­tain the level of in­ter­est in the prop­erty in or­der to in­form con­sid­er­a­tion of the fu­ture op­tions for the build­ing.

“Any­one with an in­ter­est is asked to pro­vide their de­tails to the coun­cil by the clos­ing date.”
