Plans for new Eastwood Park leisure centre and theatre expected early next year

Plans to build a new leisure centre and theatre in Eastwood Park are set to be submitted before the end of March.

By Drew Sandelands, Local Democracy Reporter
Wednesday, 16th December 2020, 8:13 am

The scheme could include a new 50m swimming pool, a spa and health suite, gym and fitness spaces and a six-court sports hall, as well as a new, accessible theatre for up to 400 people.

A proposal of application notice is to be submitted this month, with the detailed application sent in March.

The council is currently targeting October next year for work to get under way.

Councillors will be asked to approve prioritising the leisure centre and theatre project, in the short term, over wider plans for the future of the park when they meet this evening (Wednesday, December 16).

There is £26m allocated for the project, which will mainly be spread over 2021/22 and 2022/23.

Cost options for the leisure centre and theatre will be included in the budget setting process for the next financial year.

The existing £12.85m for 2021/22 is “sufficient” to cover the project for the coming year.

A working group was set up to look at options for the site after the park was chosen as the preferred location in June last year.

It met in March and August this year.

Andrew Cahill, the council’s director of environment, said in a report: “This is potentially a high quality, visually attractive, transformational and state-of-the-art facility that is much more than simply a leisure centre development.”

A briefing and feasibility report has been drawn up by lead designer and architect, Stallan Brand.

Turner & Townsend has now been appointed as project manager and Mr Cahill’s report says they have “in-depth previous experience and knowledge regarding Eastwood leisure centre”.

The briefing and feasibility study states the park feels “dominated by the existing leisure centre and theatre, council headquarters and high school”.

“Despite feeling cluttered and lacking investment, it remains a well-used range of amenities and an important part of the district,” it adds.

“The new leisure centre and theatre presents an excellent opportunity to open up the middle of the park and reorganise elements including parking and open spaces to improve the setting for all of the facilities.”

Options being explored for the leisure centre include a water play zone, for children under five, and two flumes.

The health suite could also be developed into a spa, with treatment rooms, a sauna and steam room. A library is also being considered.

Consultations were held in September with primary and secondary schools in East Renfrewshire.

A further report on the project will be presented to councillors in February.

Public consultation for Eastwood Park leisure centre and theatre opens

By William Brown Reporter

Multi-million pound plans to build a state-of-the-art leisure centre and theatre in East Renfrewshire have moved to the next stage.

A formal consultation is being launched today to give local residents their say in the final design of the new hub, which will be built in Eastwood Park.

East Renfrewshire Council has pledged that all feedback will be considered before a full planning application is submitted later this year.

The proposals include a leisure centre, theatre, library and cultural facilities.

The leisure centre is set to feature a 50m pool, a 20m training pool, a family fun pool with flume, a six-court games hall, a large gym area and four fitness studios.

Work is expected to begin early next year, with the building taking shape at a site next to the current Eastwood leisure hub, which will remain open while construction takes place.

It is hoped the new centre will be up and running some time in 2024.

East Renfrewshire Council leader Tony Buchanan said: “This is a significant milestone in our plans to deliver vastly-improved leisure and culture facilities in Eastwood.

“We want to provide the very best facilities for our residents, so it’s important that we hear directly from our communities about what they would like to see in this new facility, to help shape the final proposal which is put forward for planning permission.”

In March, the Barrhead News told how concerns had been raised over the growing costs of the new leisure hub.

A total of £26million had been allocated to the project but council bosses said it was “made clear” at the time that this would be “refined” later.

Project managers have said that, under the current plans, the basic construction costs would be £47.5m.

Anyone who would like to have their say on the plans should visit

before Friday, June 4.

Eastwood leisure centre and theatre plans move forward

Plans to build a new state-of-the-art leisure centre and theatre in Eastwood have moved to the next stage.

By Dawn Renton
Wednesday, 12th May 2021, 12:54 pm

As part of the initial steps in the planning process, a formal consultation has begun to allow residents to have input into the final design.

All comments received as part of this process will be considered before a full planning application is submitted later this year.

The proposals for the new facility, which will be built in Eastwood Park, include a leisure centre, theatre, library and cultural facilities.

It is currently planned that the centre could include a 50m pool, 20m training pool, family fun pool with flume, six-court games hall, large gym area and four fitness studios.

Work is expected to begin in early 2022, with the new building being constructed at a site adjacent to the current facility.

This will allow it to continue operating during the construction period, ensuring no major disruption to leisure provision until the new facility opens in 2024.

A dedicated consultation portal –

www.eastwoodleisure.co.uk

– is live, which allows comments to be submitted until June 4.

The project team will be available via a live chat function on the website on May 24; 1-5pm and May 25; 4-8pm to answer questions.

East Renfrewshire Council Leader Tony Buchanan said: “This is a significant milestone in our plans to deliver vastly improved leisure and culture facilities in Eastwood.

We want to provide the very best facilities for our residents, so it’s important that we hear directly from our communities what they would like to see in this new facility, to help shape the final proposal which is put forward for planning permission.”
