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.
