Exciting plans for the refurbishment and extension of Kilmardinny House in Bearsden are well underway, and local people are being given the chance to see the latest plans and designs.

Council officers have held several meetings this year, with users of the popular Grade A listed arts centre as well as the general public, all of which have helped shape the latest designs.

And people are now being offered the chance to see these designs, before they are submitted for planning permission.

To find out more go along to Kilmardinny House, 50 Kilmardinny Avenue, on Tuesday, September 1 from 6 to 8pm.

Councillor Alan Moir, convener of the council’s development & regeneration committee, said: “Kilmardinny House is a well-established and much loved local asset that is well used by many groups and organisations and a lot of consultation has taken place already. We are now at the stage where we have detailed plans, which we would like to share with people before they are submitted for planning permission. This is a very exciting project and we hope local people take this opportunity to see our plans for this much loved building.”

Scott Hill, chair of East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture Trust, added: “This exciting project promises to breathe new life into Kilmardinny House as major repairs are planned for the existing house and a new extension is planned. This will enable us to continue to support the diverse range of arts, culture and leisure services the House is renowned for.”
