Govanhill Pool could re open with Nord as architect
February 11 2005
12,000 people petitioned to keep the pool open, and protesters even staged a sit-in protest for 140 days, but Glasgow City Council did not believe it was worth the £500,000 required to keep the B-listed building in operation. However, the new trust is to apply for National Lottery grants and Scottish Executive funding to restore the building.
Nord Architects revealed ideas for the revamped building at a public meeting on 25 January. Proposals include the re-opening of the largest pool for swimming, the creation of a hydrotherapy area and steam room from the smaller pool areas and a roof garden. The trust also wants to use the complex for youth activities.
