Chancellor offers £5m grant to make Helensburgh leisure centre a reality
March 17 2016
Part of Hoskins Architects Pierhead Waterfront master plan the £17m scheme will include a ‘landmark’ swimming pool and leisure centre alongside new shops, a café and a series of public realm enhancements when it opens in 2019.
This included tentative plans for a Submarine centre.
Osborne said: “We backed the V&A Museum in Dundee, and in response to the powerful case made by Ruth Davidson (Scottish Conservative leader), we are providing new community facilities for local people in Helensburgh and the Royal Navy personnel in nearby Faslane, paid for by Libor fines."
The cash has been raised by a series of fines slapped down on some of the country’s biggest banks following the Libor rate fixing scandal, with other schemes to benefit including a £150k regeneration scheme in New Cumnock, East Ayrshire.
