We are seeking interested parties to help bring properties back into use
Published: 29 March 2022
We are currently seeking interested parties to work with us to get some of our currently vacant properties back into use.
After discussion with the local community councils, we are now seeking expressions of interest for Park Hall in Bixter and Bressay Lighthouse. This could be as a community project or private sale.
Park Hall is a unique property that the Trust took on in 2007 when it was already in a ruinous state. Built circa 1900 by a local doctor, Park Hall is an example of an early 20th century practice in Shetland for building in in-situ concrete. Bressay Lighthouse was built in 1858 and bought by the Trust in 1995. The complex has previously been used for rental accommodation and an artist in residence flat.
Sandy Middleton, our Assistant CEO said, “We have been approached by a number of community groups and private individuals who are interested in our properties at Park Hall and Bressay Lighthouse. We are keen to ensure that these sites have a purpose and can be put to good use. That might mean us working with an interested community group or even with a private individual. We would encourage anyone with an interest to get in touch.”
