"Over the next three years we'll see a new £33.7million Park Mains High School with enhanced sports facilities for community use. Sports hubs will be created at Linwood Sports Centre (£24.1m) and the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley (£7.1m) and Johnstone High School (£6.3m).
"A new build St James Primary School and Moorpark Pre-5 Centre and a redesigned and upgraded Kirklandneuk Primary will also be provided in Renfrew.
"The council has taken a strategic approach to maximise the resource we have to integrate community, education and leisure facilities and services.
"The scale of the council's investment, particularly in these difficult economic times, is a vote of confidence in Renfrewshire's future."
