Clackmannanshire wellbeing hub a step closer after key appointments

PLANS to deliver a new wellbeing hub and swimming pool in Clackmannanshire are progressing following the appointment of professional advisors by the Council’s development partner for the project, hub East Central Scotland.

Construction consultants Thomas & Adamson, along with Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects, have been appointed to support the creation of detailed options for the design and location of the proposed new facility.

This stage will see a multidisciplinary team of professionals work with the local authority to create options by the end of the summer. The project will then move on to full design and construction of the centre.

Gary Bushnell, chief executive, hub East Central Scotland, said, “We are delighted that the project is moving forward and will continue to work closely with the council and local communities to deliver the best options for this essential new facility.”

Councillor Scott Harrison, Clackmannanshire Council spokesperson for sport, leisure and active living, commented, “The appointment of these key advisors takes the implementation of a new wellbeing hub for Clackmannanshire one step closer and I look forward to seeing the detailed options for the design and location of the leisure and wellbeing centre.”
