A planning application has been made to change the use of office space to assisted accommodation in Hamilton.

The site is located at the Fountain of Youth Stadium (New Douglas Park) football stadium, and the application seeks to develop residential living on the ground and first floor of the North Stand at the stadium.

Neighbourhood consultation began on May 16 and will end on June 6 with standard consultation beginning on May 16 and ending on May 30.
