Over the last few weeks, we’re getting asked with increasing frequency if rumours are true that Blantyre Sports Centre is to be demolished. Well, we can offer some clarification to nip this in the bud.
Whilst more than just rumour, this is an exploratory plan that’s not going to happen anytime soon. The suggestion was made by officials that the Council owned building should be demolished and completely rebuilt nearby with state of the art equipment and sporting facilities, built in an eco friendly, efficient manner. However, this was simply part of an ongoing Council review of a 10 year plan for the area and is by no means a certainty.
It’s safe to say, following confirmation from council sources, the Blantyre Leisure Centre, as it is at the moment is going to be there for some years to come.
