Fund­ing boost for Dal­marnock Legacy Hub

Evening Times - - FEATURES -

A £1.25MIL­LION Lotto boost to Glas­gow’s East End was to cre­ate dozens of locals jobs.

Lot­tery chiefs were back­ing the launch of the Dal­marnock Legacy Hub, which was be­ing built next to one of the Com­mon­wealth Games venues.

The Big Lot­tery Fund handed over £1.25m towards the build­ing costs of al­most £5m for a com­mu­nity cen­tre, which will in­clude a GP surgery, chil­dren’s nurs­ery, chemist and shop.

The ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties were lost dur­ing re­de­vel­op­ment work for the mul­ti­mil­lion pound Emi­rates Arena com­plex, Sir Chris Hoy Velo­drome and the Ath­letes’ Vil­lage.

Glas­gow City Coun­cil agreed to sell a plot of land next to the arena for just £1 to the Peo­ple’s De­vel­op­ment Trust.
