Councillor Michael McCormick, Inverclyde Council’s convener of environment and regeneration, said: “I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to support this funding bid and secure such a transformational sum of money that will allow Parklea Branching Out, with support from Inverclyde Council, to regenerate and redevelop their existing facilities. It’s no surprise that due to the excellent work of staff and service users that they have outgrown their existing infrastructure so this funding will pave the way for a new, multi-purpose community hub for the benefit of the people of Port Glasgow and wider Inverclyde.
“I look forward to seeing this exciting project develop and to seeing it help more residents into work and training in keeping with the local Inverclyde Works programme to create and promote new employment opportunities.”
PBO will continue to work closely with council officers to develop detailed plans and timescales neccessary to take the project forward. We can’t wait to share details with you as the redeveloment progresses!
