Accordingly, the subject opportunity is well positioned to cater for such, being centrally positioned, set back and highly visible at one of the towns busiest intersections on the corner of Manse Road and West Mains Road, the principal commercial thoroughfare of the town.

Until its recent closure, the subjects operated for many years as a RBS branch, however following an assessment of its scope to provide alternative accommodation, consents have been awarded to sub-divide the floorpate and create 5 independent commercial units.
The consented scheme offers units of vary size and apportionment which we believe will cater to the needs of a wide mix of operators. Scheme drawings submitted as part of the planning process with West Lothian Council are attached below, for indicative purposes only.
Our client is committed to providing prospective tenants with a shell specification units to include independent supply of gas and electricity, new display frontage including inset access down and clean and cleared space however will expect tenants to take responsibility for decorative finishing including walls, floors and ceilings.
