St Aloysius’ College has submitted plans for a Burnet Bell designed sports complex at Dalhousie Street, Glasgow, containing internal sports courts, first floor cafe and an external games area. Conceived in order to limit travel time for pupils transiting to various existing facilities around the city the new complex will be built on an existing playground and backcourt area opposite the main college building, retaining a single storey classroom annexe which will be linked to the development.
