The site of the current swimming pool in Dumfries is being earmarked as a possible location for a new theatre development in the town.
A replacement for the Theatre Royal could go on a new site
The existing public baths are to be replaced with a new multi-million pound leisure centre next year.
Plans to renovate the Theatre Royal on its existing site have collapsed because of funding problems.
Now community councillors in Dumfries say the Greensands location could provide the perfect replacement.
In its annual report, Loreburn Community Council says the pool site fits the bill for a number of reasons.
Members say it is a relevant option given the failure of plans to build a new performing arts centre at the old Shakespeare Street location.
They say that a good development on the riverside site would probably cost less and offer better design options.
A revised £7m project to redevelop the Theatre Royal did secure planning permission.
However, it was abandoned when a funding package for the scheme could not be found.
