I am looking for information about a property you purchased in 1998 in Balloch, Alexandria. If was a former Garage/Petrol station, J Methven Motors Ltd. it was compulsory purchased as it was required to build the new entrance to The Lomond Shores Development. What I would like to know is what was the total purchase price for the land any other bonuses given to get your hands on it.


Scottish Enterprise acquired the site from J Methven Motors Limited in March 1998 for the sum of £485,000. The site was not compulsorily acquired with the vendor being a willing seller.
