The council is set to rake in more than £1 million from the sale of surplus land.

Since the building of Crosslet House care home in Dumbarton in 2017, land surrounding the home was deemed not to be needed by the council.

Following a marketing campaign by the local authority, Turnberry Homes came forward as a prospective buyer, and hope to build 40 houses on the site.

In a report due to go before the infrastructure, regeneration and economic development committee next month, officers say the sale could pull in £1.15 million in revenue.

Along with the initial sale, an early stage appraisal shows around £72,000 could also be claimed in council tax each year as a result of the new homes which would be built on the site.

Councillors on the committee have been asked by officers to approve the sale, and allow officers to finalise negotiations.
