£1 for a Victorian Power Station in Kirkcaldy
In August 2016, it was reported that a building at risk in Kirkcaldy was being advertised for sale at £1, provided that the purchaser had a track record of appropriate developments.
The Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland wrote:
Victoria Road Power Station, a classically detailed former electricity generating station constructed with stone from Grange Quarry in nearby Burntisland, is now being marketed for sale through agents Graham & Sibbald (16 Wemyssfield, Kirkcaldy 01592 266211) as a development opportunity.
Offers are invited at a nominal price of £1 but interested parties must prove they can undertake and complete a scheme of development that is acceptable to Historic Environment Scotland and Fife Council. Interested parties will be required to demonstrate they have a successful track record of developing site which encompass Listed buildings and that the necessary funds are in place. Further information on the requirements of the sale, and contact details for interested parties, is available on the marketing particulars.
