Livingstone Centre Planning

Planning Application is now underway for the proposed major renovation of the David Livingstone Centre, just off Station Road.

The museum and grounds which opened in 1929 are due an expensive upgrade, with the intention to turn the centre into one of Scotland’s top tourist attractions. Planning has now been lodged with South Lanarkshire Council for this first phase which will also see improvements to the Africa Pavillions, lots more parking and landscaping. 

In addition a rear extension is planned for Shuttle Row itself, the birthplace of our famous explorer.

SLC Planning Reference: HM/16/0439

Any comments have to be submitted to the Council before close of 26 Oct 2016. We’ll be keeping you posted on this subject, which we believe will put Blantyre back on the map again.
