Castlemilk’s Barlia Sports Complex is to benefit from a £500,000 refurbishment programme. The existing synthetic football pitch will be replaced with a modern rubber and mixed playing surface, and the tennis courts will be replaced with three new 5-a-side pitches. The Barlia Sports Complex is managed by Culture and Sport Glasgow. Around £300,000 of capital funding is already in place for the project, with the remainder being sought from other sources. Councillor Archie Graham, Executive Member for Culture and Sport, said: ‘Barlia Sports Complex is a fantastic and well used sporting facility, which has also been identified as one of the community football hubs for the city. This refurbishment, also part of the Council’s sports pitch strategy to upgrade the city’s sporting and recreational facilities by 2014, is a good example of where this money should be invested to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities and encourage participation in sport.’ Work on the refurbishment of Barlia Sports Complex is due to start in January 2009.
