Plans to almost double the size of a busy Aberdeen community centre have been unveiled.
Inchgarth Community Centre could see a multi-use sports hall three times the size of the current hall added.
The future plans appeared in the facility’s annual report.
It is understood that the hall would also have new male and female changing rooms added as well as office space.
Paul O’Connor, Inchgarth Community Centre manager, said: “For 20 years, Inchgarth community centre has been bursting at the seams.
“With Aberdeen City Council agreeing to a multi-million pound extension to the centre, it means Inchgarth, as the city’s busiest centre, will have the capacity to meet the ever-growing needs of our community and city.”
The new hall would be used to extend the number of sports clubs the centre could offer.
There is also potential for there to be tiered seating in the hall.
Proceeds from the sale of the Kaimhill Outdoor Sports Centre in Garthdee are set to be used to help the centre.
Officers at Aberdeen City Council have been asked to investigate the feasibility of using the money for the extension.
Centre boss Paul added that it was a great to see local authority investing in the centre.
He said: “While our core remit is to serve our locality of Garthdee and the wider electoral ward, Inchgarth is very much a centre of the city, this tremendous commitment by Aberdeen City Council is an investment in the long term sustainability of services, run by the community, representing services of excellence that are tremendous value for money.
“The addition of a large hall, cafe, and reception space will improve the entire learning, social and economic opportunities of the centre, that in turn allows us to plan long term and deliver even more exciting activities and resources for people to enjoy.”
Inchgarth Community Centre was recently the recipient of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The MBE for volunteer groups is the highest recognition that can be received from Buckingham Palace.
