Today we heard the news that SLC has sold the first 5 floors of its council headquarters to the Link housing association. The office floor space will be converted into Bedsits and to maximise the profit they will be converting the fire escape stairs into communal showers & toilets with the toilets on the left-hand side and the showers on the right. They won’t be installing baths as it will be take up too much space.
The Boss of SLC Eddie McAvoy told Historic Hamilton that he was planning to turn the roof area of the county buildings into a communal drying green and 5 a side football pitch with astroturf included.
Link housing has also applied for planning permission for one-half of the outdoor fountain to be used as a communal outdoor pool which will come with a 30p charge to use it.
With the first 5 floors of the SLC headquarters being sold off what does this mean for the rest South Lanarkshire’s tallest building?
Wishing you all a Happy April Fools Day from all at Historic Hamilton.
