Building work on a £7.7million community sports village in Banchory is now underway as of February 2018, after the Provost of Aberdeenshire, Cllr Bill Howatson, stuck the ceremony spade in the ground this morning at an event to mark the start of construction.
There will be a six lane swimming pool; training pool; three court sports hall; fitness suite; exercise room and squash courts; changing facilities; storage rooms; staff facilities; public viewing areas for the swimming pool and squash courts and a cafe. As well as the sports village there will be 130 homes, a care village and shops being built on the site.
We really appreciate that the local community has come together in support of this fantastic new leisure complex. We would particularly like to thank a local fundraising group called Banchory Sports Village who raised £700,000. It is anticipated that the sports centre will open in May 2019.
