Drumgeith Community Asset Transfer22/02/17
A well-known city building could be rented to a Community sports hub should councillors agree to the latest proposed community asset transfer.
Drumgeith Sports Pavilion would be run by Fairfield Community Sports Hub under the proposed transfer from Dundee City Council.
Will Dawson convener of the council's city development committee said: "This proposed transfer is the perfect opportunity for the group to take control of its own destiny. It will give them security for the future knowing that the building’s lease is confirmed and that the facilities can be put to good use by generations to come.
“Drumgeith Park has played host to sporting activities for as long as anyone can remember and the creation of a local group specifically set up to boost the number of people taking part in physical exercise and recreation will give it a real shot in the arm as Dundee City Council may only ask for a maximum of £1 rent per year for the next 99 years".
Under the terms of the Community Asset Transfer the Fairfield Community Sports Hub will use the pavilion and be responsible for all repairs, maintenance and operating costs, while Dundee City Council will only ask for a maximum of £1 rent per year for the next 99 years.
The city development committee meets to discuss the proposed transfer on Monday (February 27).
