Green light for North Lanarkshire community hubs

Posted on by in Weekly News

North Lanarkshire Council’s planning committee has approved applications to build two new community hubs in Gartcosh and Bargeddie.

Councillor Michael McBride, Convener of Education, Children and Families, said: “The new Gartcosh Community Hub and St Kevin’s Community Hub in Bargeddie will offer first-class facilities for pupils and staff – as well as the wider community – to enjoy.

“The latest developments in our town and community hub programme represent our clear ambition to deliver 21st-century learning, teaching and community facilities.

“They have also been designed for community groups to use the buildings after the school day, at weekends and during the holidays.”

The Gartcosh project includes a new campus for the relocation of Gartcosh Primary School, a new Language Communication Support Centre, a nursery class and community facilities with associated car parking, sports facilities, a community garden and landscaping.

The main building will be developed over a two-storey teaching block with a double-height atrium at its heart; this central space will provide several shared activity areas.

Meanwhile, the new St Kevin’s Community Hub includes a new primary school, meeting rooms, flexible workspaces, multi-use games area (MUGA), a games hall and landscaping features.

Construction work is expected to start later this year.
