Work done on former bus depot
MAINTENANCE work has been taking place at Whitehaven’s former bus station.
A Copeland Council spokesperson said bird faeces have been cleared and survey work is being done to check the quality of the building.
The work is being completed by the Torquay-based company Whitehaven Marina, which owns the building.
In August 2009, an outline planning application was approved to demolish the derelict bus station on Bransty Row and replace it with underground car parking with 60 spaces and 56 apartments above.
