Delay is over after work finally begins on village venue that never re-opened after lockdown

A long-awaited development in a part of town without any viable place to meet is finally underway after it emerged that Dullatur Community Hall is now being refurbished.

Dullatur Community Council which had met there is now in a position to tell residents that work to the damaged venue is now underway.

Shut during lockdown, burst pipes caused damage beyond repair in January 2021 and the venue never re-opened.

The area is now restricted and members of Dullatur Tennis Club are being told they can access the courts via the gate just off Dullatur Road instead.It is also advised that the court key can be used on both gates.

The building will be re-designed after a Dullatur-based architect Curtis Hold heeded the call for help that appeared in this newspaper.

Mr Hold who works in the award winning Grant Murray Architects in Glasgow’s Merchant City gave up his free time and professional services to submit drawings for the building warrant application.
