A planning application has been submitted to Renfrewshire Council for community sports facilities in Renfrew.

The plans have been submitted by historic Harmony Row Youth Club for their site at Alex Ferguson Park.

Phase one of the proposed works would include two MUGAs (multi-use games areas)/five-a-side pitches.

The second phase, meanwhile, would involve creating a single-storey sports pavilion with changing facilities and a clubhouse for assembly/leisure use.

The proposed building would replace existing changing and clubhouse facilities and the MUGAs/pitches would be located on land behind this.

A soft-landscaped viewing terrace would also be created.

During phase three of the proposed works 30 new parking spaces including three accessible spaces would be created.

The plans also outline space between the changing facilities and pitches which would be earmarked for the future accommodation of a sports hall.

The plans, which have yet to be decided on, were submitted to the council on May 21 and validated on June 5.

Harmony Row Youth Club is known for its links with former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson after whom the park is named.

As a 10-year-old, Sir Alex began playing with Harmony Row and is now a patron and benefactor of the club.
