Limited parking spaces will remain available at Morrisons in Bishopbriggs while the store is closed for a year-long refurbishment.

The supermarket chain has confirmed that a total of 35 spaces will be open for customers who are not buying fuel at the temporary Morrisons Daily store which will operate while the main supermarket branch goes through its major overhaul.

The next closest Morrisons supermarket branch is a quarter of an hour's drive away in Easterhouse.

Thomas MacPherson, manager of Morrisons Bishopbriggs, said: "We know the residents of Bishopbriggs are eagerly anticipating the opening of our new store and we’re working hard to mitigate the inconvenience while it is being built."

East Dunbartonshire Council stated its own nearby car park would remain open to allow motorists to access the town centre.

The council’s depute chief executive Ann Davie commented: "The Morrisons car park is not a public car park and Morrisons has never been under any obligation to provide parking for the wider town centre.

"The Council-owned chargeable car park at nearby Kenmure Drive has a capacity for 65 vehicles and remains open and available for town centre use.

"As part of the City Deal town centre regeneration project, we are looking at the connections and crossings in the town centre and ways to improve and enhance these.

"This will include the route to Kenmure Drive car park, making it even easier for people to park there and access the town centre."
