Welcome to the Orbiston Community Hub Newsletter. We are beginning the exciting journey of designing and delivering a new Community Hub for Bellshill.

The aspiration is to create a collaborative, community focused facility which will include Lawmuir Primary, Sacred Heart Primary, a Family Learning Centre, community and partnership zones in a brand new dynamic building.

What is happening

As part of this process, we are currently gathering information about the site and the aspiration and requirements of the building users. This includes consultation with pupils, staff, Parent Council, community groups and the wider community in general. Using this information will enable us to better understand what is required of this new Community Hub. This will ensure we deliver a new building that enhances and strengthens the opportunities for all generations. We will be touch, via newsletter, in the coming weeks. This will include project updates and further information on opportunities to engage with the consultation process.

Up-Coming Events:

Site Surveys including:

  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Site Investigations. This will require some drilling and excavations in and around the site defined by the red line above.

Considering the recent COVID-19 pandemic, all work will be carried out using the government guidelines for safe working in construction ensuring that all work areas are necessarily controlled and maintained throughout. A consultation event for the community will take place on 23rd June at 6.30pm. Further details will be provided in the next newsletter.
