Three Council sites across West Dunbartonshire are set to be sold off for almost £100,000.

The sales include a building in Bonhill and one in Alexandria as well as a piece of unused land in Clydebank.

At a meeting of the Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development Committee this week, members were told of interested buyers for the sites.

The premises in George Street, Bonhill have been purchased by Sava Estates Ltd who submitted the highest offer at £27,601.

Meanwhile the building at Bank Street, Alexandria has been purchased by Daveed Malik for £40,144.

As well as benefitting from the capital receipts, the Council will also no longer have to incur revenue costs for managing and maintaining the property including utility costs.

The third site is a piece of land adjacent to 193 Dumbarton Road, Clydebank which has been purchased by David Hamilton for a price of £30,000.

Councillor David McBride, Convener of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development said: "I want to thank the officers who have worked hard to market sites which are no longer used by the Council and, in turn, receiving a capital receipt at a time when budgets are stretched to their limit."

Councillor Lawrence O'Neill, Vice Convener of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development said: "I am pleased that the sale of these buildings and land will bring benefits to our communities, improving the appearance of our local areas and making use of these sites once again."

Officers will now take steps to finalise the sales.
