Woodhall Community Centre

Woodhall Tenants Hall

CLS were appointed by River Clyde Homes and Woodhall Residents Association to consider the business case for a new community centre in Woodhall. The Woodhall area of Port Glasgow is currently undergoing significant physical change with a great deal of demolition of housing and a reducing population. Consultation surveys were carried out on a face to face basis with 50% of the core Woodhall residents surveyed.

CLS staff interviewed potential partners and identified three possible sites for a new building. Because of this work and despite the very high levels of deprivation, we had to recommend that at present there was insufficient community support to take the project forward. Once the housing development has gathered pace there may be future scope for a small local facility meeting the needs of the new residents.
