Petition to the Court of Sessions re the Former Lochside Leisure Centre

Tuesday 15 March 2022

As no commercial or community group has come forward to take over the former Lochside Leisure Centre, a decision was taken at Angus Council on 16 December 2021 to demolish it.

Angus Council has now presented a Petition to the Court of Session for authorisation under section 75(2) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 for the appropriation and disposal of land forming part of the common good by implementing a proposal to demolish the Lochside Leisure Centre, Forfar and return the land to park land as part of Forfar Loch Country Park.

There is now an opportunity for anybody who may have an interest to lodge Answers to the Petition. Answers must be lodged with the Office of Court, Court of Session, 2 Parliament Square, Edinburgh, EH1 1RQ within 21 days after the date of this notice. View a copy of the formal notice and petition.
