Tenants are being sought to take over the running of the new pavilion at Hermitage Park in Helensburgh.

The chance to run the pavilion’s new cafe at the refurbished Helensburgh park is also on offer.

Argyll and Bute Council has asked that would-be occupants are able to commit to a 10-year lease of the ground-breaking structure – thought to be the first non-domestic building in Scotland built to ‘Passivhaus’ energy-saving standards.

The pavilion, which will also include community meeting facilities, will be the centrepiece of the park’s £3.3 million regeneration, due to be completed later this year.

Prospective tenants for the pavilion are also asked to take responsibility for the maintenance of the public toilets from 8am to 6pm in summer and 9pm to 4pm in winter.

But they will have the option of whether to man the kiosk themselves, or to delegate it to somebody else via a separate lease.

Anyone interested in applying to run the pavilion are asked to contact the estates department at Argyll and Bute Council on estates@argyll-bute.gov.uk or 01436 658957.
