A SECOND application has been submitted to turn a Grade-B listed building in Alexandria into a children's soft play.

Proposals were made to West Dunbartonshire Council last month to turn the hall of St Mungo's Episcopal Church into a soft play.

However, a second application has now been submitted to the council - which currently has no public documents available - to turn the church hall into a children's soft play.

On the proposal which was made last month, it stated that it is believed "that only the externals of the building are designated as being listed".

The Reporter understands that the contents inside the church have been cleared out since the church's closure.

In August 2021, the Main Street church shut its doors for the final time to the public.

A year later the building was on the market for offers in the region of £170,000, and soon found a prospective buyer.

Scottish Episcopal Church Diocese of Glasgow submitted an application for formal listed building consent to West Dunbartonshire Council for permission to remove large fittings from the building ahead of its sale.

The Diocese required formal permission to remove large items, including the organ and main altar, from the church, which was built in 1895 after being designed by J M Crawford and listed as category B in 1996.
