Kirkintilloch leisure centre development approved

Work on Kirkintilloch's new 7.6million leisure centre will start early in the new year, after plans were approved by councillors. The state-of-the-art centre should be completed by spring 2007.

Councillor Rhondda Geekie said: "This is one of the most important developments for Kirkintilloch's Initiative (KI) and I'm delighted that we have got to this stage.
"People are really looking forward to the leisure centre going ahead. The community has played a great role in shaping the plans and it's great to see approval has been granted for all the facilities they wanted and many more."

Council leader John Morrison said: "This is the first in a range of KI projects leading to a 56million investment in the regeneration of Kirkintilloch.
"We are committed to delivering this investment to the town and the plans that have been approved will provide a first class leisure facility that will benefit everybody."

The centre will include a 25metre swimming pool, training pool, sports hall with spectator seating, all-weather five-a-side football pitches and tennis courts.
Plans also include a gym with consultation rooms and an exercise studio, sauna cabins and a steam room, a 'changing village', cafe and creche.

Duncan Hamilton, Project Director of KI, said: "We are pleased to have received detailed planning consent. "We are currently pulling together information required to meet the planning consent conditions and are still working to our original timescales. "We expect to be starting the building work on site in January 2006."
