Common Good Land: Potential sale of Denny Town House

Closes 9 Dec 2022

Opened 13 Oct 2022

Overview

It is proposed that Denny Town House and associated ground (coloured pink on the plan) be advertised and sold.

Built in the early 1930's, Denny Town House is a substantial, two-storey sandstone office building located at the junction of Glasgow Road and Town House Street.

Picture of Denny Town House

Originally occupied by the Town Council of the Burgh of Denny and Dunipace, the building was used as municipal offices and a public library. Since those early days, the property has been used as office space continually by Falkirk Council and its predecessors.

The accommodation is dated, and its cellular layout is no longer suitable for use as modern office space or of use to the Council.

As well as savings being made on security costs and rates, selling Denny Town House would result in funds being added to the Common Good Fund.
