Renfrewshire Council has refused Kelburne Hockey Club’s application for a community asset transfer (CAT) of Ralston Community Sports Centre to the club. The decision was made at the meeting of Renfrewshire Council’s CAT Panel on 30 August 2022. The reasons given for refusing the application were:

  1. Uncertainty of funding available to carry out works detailed in the CAT Request; and
  2. Impact of the significant degree of community opposition to the CAT Request on community cohesion.

More details can be found in Renfrewshire Council’s decision notice.

A huge thank you to the community for coming together to oppose the application, for attending meetings, and for the massive amount of letters and email representations. Your collective voices have been heard! We look forward to supporting and working with OneRen to make Ralston Community Sports Centre great again.
