B-listed Glasgow boathouse secures lottery support
October 24 2016
The GBPT is working with two rowing clubs to firm up plans for the repair and adaptation of the timber framed building to serve as an interpretation and heritage centre.
GBPT chair Murray Shaw said: “We are thrilled that the Heritage Lottery Fund have given their support to this unique project. Once completed, we expect the West Boathouse will serve the users of Glasgow Green and wider community groups in the future, as well as it has served the rowing clubs in the past. We look forward to working with the volunteers of the two rowing clubs and local groups to ensure this project is a success.”
Detailed proposals will now be worked up with a view to finalizing funding arrangements in 2017, enabling a move to be made on-site the following year to complete by 2019.
