Dalmarnock Legacy Hub

17/12/2013
Community Engagement / Regeneration
Construction has started on a new community centre next to a major Commonwealth Games venue.

The community-owned Dalmarnock Legacy Hub, a new social recreational and educational centre in the shadow of the Emirates Arena, marks the next stage in the regeneration of the East End of Glasgow thanks to the Games.

The building will house a new all-purpose community hall, a nursery, GP surgery, pharmacy, training and educational facilities, a convenience store and community café. The facilities were decided by the local community. Construction work will support over 60 jobs and four apprenticeships, while 55 new long term jobs will be created at the Hub.

The Scottish Government is providing £2.05 million investment in the project, alongside £1.23 million from Clyde Gateway while Glasgow City Council sold the site, worth £200,000, for a nominal £1 to project managers, the People’s Development Trust.
