Planning application to turn Hamilton’s former pharmacy into a cafe submitted

Planning permission is sought to convert an old Hamilton pharmacy into a café.

The former Right Medicine Pharmacy site on Brandon Street has been vacant for about five months, but a planning application was filed in late January to convert the store into a cafe/restaurant.

The premises were rented out in September last year, and the rental offered a full repair and insurance lease for a term to be agreed.
