New Tenants for Scalpay School

The North Harris Trust has been engaged in lengthy discussion with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar with regard to leasing the Scalpay School Buildings for a 1 year trial period.  The Trust’s intention is to lease the building as business and office space to various sub-tenants for a year.  Leasing the building for a year from the Comhairle will allow the Trust and sub-tenants time to build a strong business plan and source funding for the possible purchase and future renovation of the site.

The lease of the School proved to be more challenging than originally anticipated as we had to overcome some hurdles related to the Change of Use Planning process. However, we are pleased to say that Planning Permission has been approved and sub-tenants moved into the building on 1 December.

Over the course of the next year the Trust will be working on a business plan and commissioning condition surveys and will obtain a valuation of the site along with estimates for potential renovation costs, in order to determine if the site is worth purchasing.

Look out for local advertising from our new sub-tenants over the next few weeks and months!
