Miller homes buys former West Dunbartonshire council office site for £2.5m


The site of former offices for West Dunbartonshire Council in Clydebank is set to be sold to a housing developer for almost £2.5 million.The building, on Roseberry Place, Kilbowie Road, was declared surplus in 2016, and was subsequently demolished.An offer of £2,475,000 from Miller Homes has now been accepted, subject to a site investigation by the housebuilder to ensure no abnormal costs.The company plans to use the site for building 63 new homes made up of a mix of three bedroom semi-detached houses, and three-bed terraced homes. Councillors were asked to consider the offer during a meeting of the infrastructure, regeneration and economic development committee yesterday.During the meeting, they were told a project of the size Miller Homes planned would be likely to generate the council a minimum income of around £114,777 per year in Council Tax and sewage charges.Miller Homes will pay a deposit of £100,000 once the missives have been concluded.Following discussion, the offer was approved.
