Provanhall visitor centre secures £500k council grant
September 13 2016Seven Lochs Wetland Park has been given a £500k boost in the form of a council grant.
Overseen by conservation architect Fiona Sinclair and City Design Cooperative acting as landscape architects the work will see an existing cobbled courtyard replaced with flagstone paving.
Interior renovation plans are still subject to detailed design work by an in-house council team.
Councillor Frank McAveety, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “This is a great day for Easterhouse town centre and the wider area. Today’s decision by the council allows the redevelopment of one of the city’s oldest buildings and the creation of a fantastic visitor centre which will play a key role in the continuing regeneration of Easterhouse.”
The work forms part of the £6m Easterhouse Town Centre Action Plan which is likely to lead to a refurbishment of the Shandwick Square shopping centre and public realm enhancements.
