Council Executive voted to sell a 964 square metre piece of land in Greendykes Road, Broxburn, to Aldi for £96,400.

The narrow grassed strip of land is between the public footpath and Aldi's proposed development site, and the supermarket operator wishes to incorporate the land in their site for landscaping purposes.

Leader of West Lothian Council Lawrence Fitzpatrick said: "As the council has no operational use for the land, we have agreed to sell the land to Aldi as part of their development proposals.

"The sale will also generate a capital receipt for the council, which can then be re-invested in West Lothian."
