This follows a pre-application consultation in May, which allowed residents to share their views and help shape the proposals.

Andy Cahill, East Renfrewshire Council’s director of Environment, said: “We’ve worked hard to get this project to this stage and have taken on board the points made during the pre-planning application phase.

"The application will now be assessed and go before a future planning committee.”

If planning permission is granted, it is proposed work would begin in early 2022. The current facility would continue operating until the new facility opened in 2024.
