SPORTS teams are jumping for joy after news that a sports pavilion will be built in Waterside to replace the current building.

Councillors on East Dunbartonshire Council’s planning committee gave the go-ahead for the pavilion in Taig Gardens last week. Five car parking spaces will also be created.

Kirkintilloch East and Twechar councillor Jack Young has welcomed the move.

He said: “I am absolutely delighted that this is going ahead. I have had many meetings with officers to bring this about.

“The new facility will be greatly used and appreciated by the local teams.”

Grace Irvine, head of assets and property services, said: “It is anticipated that the project will be completed by the start of the new football season.”
