£1.75m plans to transform Thornliebank move one step closer
Plans for a £1.75m transformation of Thornliebank have taken another major step forward.
The 'Transforming Thornliebank' project, developed by East Renfrewshire Council and East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure Trust (ERCLT), aims to convert Thorntree Hall into a community hub, providing a wide range of public services within a high quality public space.
A £1.2 million funding application to the Scottish Government's Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF) has now progressed to the second stage.
In East Renfrewshire we are working hard to make sure our town centres are thriving and vibrant. We want them to be places where people want to come to shop, work and socialise. We are encouraging residents to get in touch to tell us what they like about Thornliebank, and in particular Thorntree Hall, what is missing from the area, what they think works well and what additional services they would like to see. These ideas will help to shape the future of Thornliebank.
Convener for Infrastructure and Sustainable Growth - Councillor Tony Buchanan
The RCGF, developed by the Scottish Government in partnership with COSLA and local authorities, provides financial support to projects that will help to deliver large-scale improvements to deprived areas. It focuses on projects that engage and involve local communities, help support and create jobs and build sustainable communities.
The panel met on 15 September 2016 and have invited 43 projects to submit full stage two applications. The council's second stage application will be considered on 30 January 2017.
