The council has agreed a £85,000 price with owners Dalmarnock Limited for the 0.14 hectare former public house site.  The site is required to provide parking and a drop-off point for the expanding Blackridge Primary School, with work due to start on a new nursery soon. 


Leader of West Lothian Council Lawrence Fitzpatrick said: "It's great that we have reached a deal to bring this highly visible piece of derelict land on Blackridge's Main Street back into beneficial use.  "The local community was keen that we take steps to acquire the land. The expansion of Blackridge Primary School, with the upcoming addition of the new nursery, means that it's vital we take steps to improve access to the school for the growing population."
