Everything you need to know about the new Moray Sports Centre

Moray Sports Centre is part of a massive expansion of the south of Elgin.

The complex is being supported by Springfield Properties as part of a masterplan including 2,500 homes, two new primary schools and a range of other facilities.

Once complete, the structure will be home to facilities which can host gymnastics, trampoline and martial arts clubs.

Funding for the ambitious project is being secured through bids for external grants and fundraising events, with Springfield pledging to match-fund what is received.

The team behind the sports centre submitted a bid to Sport Scotland in December, with the result of the application expected within the next month.

Initially the design of the sports hall had a dark frontage – but it was changed to white due to concerns the grey would attract algae from the nearby Linkwood Distillery.

The £7million main building is the first phase of the project and could be open early next year.

However, enough land has been included in the proposals to allow space for football pitches, tennis courts and a running track so they can be added when extra funding is secured.

Close bonds are expected to be forged with the new Linkwood Primary School, which will be built next to the sports centre near the old railway line to Rothes.
