PLANS for a block of 12 retirement flats at Friarsbrae, Linlithgow, have been submitted to council planners.

Mr and Mrs J. Amos have submitted designs to West Lothian Council to build the flats at Westerlea Court.

There would be six one-bedroom and six two-bedroom flats, a resident’s lounge and pantry, lift access, laundry, a guest suite and other shared facilities. There would be 21 parking spaces with 14 located in ground floor garages, seven at the front of the building, and three designated disabled. Visitor access would be via a central entry view-phone security system.

The need for retirement housing in West Lothian was highlighted by statistics published in 2010.
