ABB Update - by Will

Extremely glad to see the following on the recess sub committee agenda and even better that this was accepted by the committee

Extract from committee agenda below....
Concern has been expressed regarding ABB's derelict factory premises at East Kingsway Works.

Following discussions between the Depute Chief Executive (Support Services) and the Director ofPlanning and Transportation it has therefore been decided to proceed with a Dangerous BuildingsNotice under the Building (Scotland) Act 2003.

The Notice which is currently being served requires ABB (unless they successfully appeal to theSheriff) to secure the building against entry by 13th August and then demolish it by 28th December2007.

I am hoping that ABB do not decide to appeal this notice and this blot on the landscape will be gone forever. I will be watching this item with interest over the upcoming months and as the 13th has passed will be asking the Planning and Transportation Director if they have been able to secure the building.

The Sub-Committee are asked to note the position and that the Planning and Transport Committeewill be kept advised of progress.
