A planning application for the refurbishment of Rothesay Pavilion has been submitted to Argyll and Bute Council.

 

Plans for the refurbishment of Rothesay Pavilion have been officially submitted to Argyll and Bute Council.

The submission of a planning application for the building’s ‘adaptive restoration’ is the latest phase in the project, which hopes to attract external funding support of £7.7 million from a variety of public and private sources.

The plans provide for a permanent space for temporary exhibitions of art, history and heritage, the return of the first-floor cafe to its original use, the conversion of the space above the cafe - presently open to the elements - to a glazed-in meeting space, and the conversion of a secondary ground floor space on the Mackinlay Street side of the building to an entertainment and creative facility with a focus on younger people.

The project recently received ‘stage one’ approval for grant applications to two major funding sources overseen by the Scottish Government - the Coastal Communities Fund and the Regeneration Capital Grants Fund.
