Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall likely to be used for storage
March 30 2010
Option one, the “do nothing” approach, would see only basic maintenance carried out as needed.
A second proposal would see the venue upgraded to host boxing events for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, potentially opening the door to a third option which would see a better community sports facility on the site and museum storage space offered.
A partnership with Glasgow University would allow a fourth plan incorporating a combined storage facility to be pursued and enhancements made to the sports facility.
As a last resort the building could simply be mothballed, to the detriment of the area.
Options three and four have been deemed most likely to receive Heritage Lottery Funding and as such councillors are looking to commit £85k towards developing an official funding application.
