The Pavilion on Howwood Park is a football changing facility which has been closed for around 14 years. During this time the building has fallen into disrepair.
Friends of Howwood Park submitted an application for a Community Asset Transfer of the building from Renfrewshire Council.
The proposal is to refurbish the building and to return it to community use, not only as a football changing facility, but as a hub for park activities.
The application was approved at Renfrewshire Councils Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board on 27th January 2021.
We are now in the process of awaiting a lease and are raising funds to upgrade the building.
To date we have been granted £50,000 from Renfrewshire Councils Community Empowerment Fund towards the project.
