Work has begun on creating foundations for the new multi-purpose extension at Carnoustie Leisure Centre.

The £200,000 project involves a flat roofed extension to the south elevation of the property. It will have a footprint of 141 square metres and an overall height of 3.8 metres.

The flat roof will be finished in sarnafil with the external walls being glazing and rendered to match the existing building.

The extension will accommodate a seating area, kitchen, servery and toilets.

The plan also makes provision for an external serving facility along with an external seating area on the hardstanding area adjacent to the extension.

Angus Provost, local councillor Helen Oswald, told the Guide & Gazette: “Good news that the contractors are on site a week early! This extension to the leisure centre will include café facilities serving walkers and cyclists who use the coastal pathway, as well as the thousands of people who use the excellent Sandy Sensation playpark. It will also be great for the young people who will use the skatepark that is due to open in July.”
