Plans lodged for new Allander Leisure Centre facility
East Dunbartonshire Council has formally submitted a planning application for the proposed new Allander Leisure Centre.
The council is aiming to redevelop the Bearsden site to form a state-of-the-art sports and leisure centre, with additional plans to incorporate services for adults with learning disabilities.
Designed by Holmes Miller, the Allander project includes proposals for a larger swimming pool, games hall, gym, cafe and changing facilities as well as improved football and tennis facilities.
Services to support adults with a learning disability will also be included within the centre (re-provisioned from Kelvinbank Resource Centre).
Engagement has taken place with Allander Champions Group, community councils, Allander users, residents’ associations and local schools.
Work has been carried out with partners including East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust and East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership.
Thomas Glen, the council’s depute chief executive - place, neighbourhood & corporate assets, said: “I would encourage people with an interest in the Allander project to take the opportunity to have a look at the application details. If anyone wishes to make comments, these should be submitted directly to the Planning Service.”
