The £7 million site in Bathgate includes a public atrium cafe, restaurant, garden, multi-purpose rooms and a hairdresser.

News that the buildings are ready for their occupants comes amid a rise in the number of older people living in West Lothian.

Council leader John McGinty said: “I was very impressed with the new Rosemount Gardens complex, which will offer assisted living for older people close to the heart of Bathgate.

“West Lothian has a rising population of older people, and it’s essential we take steps now to make sure we can cater for the growing demand.”

Councillor McGinty said the new development would be key to boosting quality of life in the region.

And he also said it would help bring residents together.

“The new £7m Rosemount Gardens and Court development will offer comfortable supported housing for local older people, and create a real sense of community through the welcoming communal areas,” he added.

The Mid Street scheme has been delivered in partnership with Hub South East Scotland and Graham Construction.
