PUBLIC opinion is being sought on the future use of the Dalmarnock Legacy Hub.

A consultation process has been opened by Glasgow City Council to gather the community's views and will run until April 24.

The hub, part funded by the council, was opened following the 2014 Commonwealth Games and housed a nursery, community hall and healthcare services.

But, in February last year, the operators went into administration and the council was able to buy back the land for the original sale price, a nominal sum of £1.

The authority has been exploring alternative uses for the building, with the public now invited to share their ideas.

Councillor Greg Hepburn, chair of the neighbourhoods, housing and public realm committee, said: "I am delighted that we are announcing the beginning of this six week public engagement exercise.

"The people of Dalmarnock have been waiting patiently for the reopening of the legacy hub, and we would like everyone with an interest to take part in this consultation so that we can confirm what services the community wants to see based there.

"All options are on the table, from bringing back nursery provision to keeping a space for local events and social gatherings.

"If you have thoughts on the building's future, please take part in the online survey or drop-in events.

"If you do, we can make sure the hub delivers the services that the people of Dalmarnock want and need in this fantastic local space."

The public engagement events will be held on Tuesday, March 17 from noon, Wednesday, March 25 at 6pm and Saturday, March 28 from 1pm.

The city council wants to find out what people in Dalmarnock "want and need from this building", which "could bring the right local services together into one accessible space for the benefit of everyone in the community".

It has said the hub does not have to be ran by the council, with the consultation set up to help decide who operates and manages the building.

Once the process is complete, a report will be given to stakeholders and an open meeting will be held with residents.
