Lennoxtown community hub wins go-ahead
East Dunbartonshire Council has given the all clear to a £5m community hub in Lennoxtown which will entail the demolition of two tenements and a parade of shops on the town’s Main Street to create an all-in-one facility for council services.

Designed by Anderson Bell Christie the hub will be built by Morgan Sindall on behalf of hub West Scotland and includes a library, council offices, community space and NHS facility.

It is designed to ‘re-establish the grain of the street’ with a linear two-storey building broken by a vertical feature and is clad in textured brick, with timber and glass elements.

Council leader Rhondda Geekie said, "This is great news for Lennoxtown and reinforces our commitment to the area by providing vital public services at a local level.

"The development of the new facility will see over £5m of investment by the Council within Lennoxtown and will assist with the regeneration of the village centre.”

Construction work is expected to get underway in February 2015.
