Work begins on new Royston community hub
The new building will replace the existing Rainbow Hall while retaining its fabulous façade to ensure the new building complements local surroundings, including the impressive, adjacent Church Spire, visible across the city and beyond.
The building was purchased by Spire View from the Church of Scotland, thanks to financial support from the Scottish Land Fund and works will be undertaken by Fleming Buildings Ltd.
The new facility will include two community halls, community café area, large flexible meeting space, commercial kitchen, reception area with open plan office space, smaller additional office space, interview room and community shop unit.
Meanwhile significant environmental works will start on the adjacent ‘Spire Park’ site, owned by Rosemount Spire and Park Limited, a subsidiary of the Rosemount Development Trust. Spire View Housing Association and the Development Trust, with the support of the Royston Strategy Group, have been working in partnership to make this fantastic project a reality for the local Royston community.
This project has been 10 years in the making and has come to fruition thanks to support from the following:
The project is due to complete in April 2019.
