Approval of outline designs for Rothesay Pavilion
While I wouldn’t go so far as to say I was worried about the future of Rothesay’s iconic Art Deco pavilion, that doesn’t mean I don’t still harbour some concerns.
Although I don’t see the building as being at any particular risk, in the sense that we will see it become abandoned, derelict, and lose its roof, I do worry slightly about the time everything takes to progress from stage to stage, and how the funding is slow to be secured (that’s not to misread as any criticism of those securing it).
However, things do keep moving forward, and the latest news of approval for designs for the building which will go forward to form the basis of a business plan, and planning and funding applications, is good to hear.
And comes with a projected date of mid 2017 for the renovated building to open its doors.
I’ll be watching that date, and hoping it doesn’t slip.
The plans include upgrading of the main hall and facilities, with a goods lift to the lower floor.
Creation of new space for performances, and extensions on the roof for office space and other use.
A new café with improved facilities., including a lift to all floors.
The building to be refurbished inside and out.
