CONSTRUCTION consultants have been appointed to deliver plans for a wellbeing hub and swimming pool in the Wee County.

Thomas & Adamson along with Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects have been appointed by Clackmannanshire Council's development partner for the project, hub East Central Scotland to help deliver the pool.

The facility is set to replace the closed Alloa Leisure Bowl while plans to build an interim pool at the Marshill car park have previously been approved.

The consultants will support the creation of detailed options for the design and location of the proposed wellbeing hub by the end of this summer.

Thereafter, the project will move on to the full design and construction of the hub.

Cllr Scott Harrison – spokesperson for sport, leisure and active living – said: “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.”

As previously reported, two locations are being considered for the hub, including the site of facility it is set to replace as well as land off Smithfield Loan in Alloa West.

Mark Finlay, partner at Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects, added: “We are really pleased to get the opportunity to work closely with Clackmannanshire Council and Hub East Central Scotland on the development of the proposed wellbeing hub and swimming pool.

“This is an exciting project and we look forward to engaging with the local community to help create a fantastic facility.”
