A community group is hoping council leaders will next week sign-off on the near £220,000 funding required to improve sports facilities in Peterhead.
Peterhead Area Community Trust (Pact) has applied for the cash so it can upgrade the Barclay Park Pavilion build new meeting spaces.
The body was launched earlier this year with the aim of transforming the sporting amenities that are currently on offer in the town.
Its members include local councillor Dianne Beagrie and Graeme Mackie from Peterhead Boys Club and it also has the backing of the Feuars Managers for Peterhead.
Pact received £2,500 in the summer so they could carry out a feasibility study into completely refurbishing the pavilion in the hope of providing a community meeting and activity space as well as changing facilities.
The other project Pact is involved with is building a brand new pavilion and car park at Victoria Park, which is currently disused.
A report by council business services chief Ritchie Johnson said the estimated cost of the work at Barclay Park is £160,000, with the Victoria Park upgrade likely to cost about £80,000.
The document also said the Pact feasibility study had found there was a “lack of” grass pitches for football and other sports in Peterhead.
Recommending the projects to councillors, Mr Ritchie said both projects would be a welcome boost for the entire town.
He said: “These facilities will support the reconfiguration of the site and the new provision of an all-weather training facility, suitable for football, basketball and a general training area.
“These projects will provide increased opportunities for the community, centrally located in Peterhead, to increase levels of physical activity in line with community health and wellbeing priorities.
“At Barclay Park pavilion there will be new opportunities for community involvement as volunteers in shaping the activity programme and the most effective use of the building.
“There will be similar volunteering opportunities at Victoria Park around the environment and development of the site.”
The cash for the projects has come from developer obligations.
Members of the Buchan area committee will consider the £219,488 funding bid when they meet in Peterhead on Tuesday.
