Benvie Road derelict garage

I have raised my concerns and those of local residents on numerous occasions recently about the condition of the former garage at the top end of Benvie Road that has been the subject of fire raising in the past.

The building warrant to demolish the structure was granted back in October but there were delays in the owner/agent starting the demolition works. I am now pleased to note some progress, with works to demolish starting, albeit that progress is quite slow. See photograph above taken a couple of days ago - part of the building has been removed.

I am continuing to keep a close eye on the situation and liaise with planning officers about the matter. The whole community in the Benvie Road area will be pleased to see the removal of this building.
