A completely new leisure centre is to be built next to the old centre, which will remain open while the new facility is built.

The new building, to be completed in early 2020, will incorporate a range of modern facilities, including a six-lane 25m indoor pool and a learner pool with movable floor with wet-side village changing facilities built in line with Sport England guidelines.
A large fitness suite will be spacious enough to house the latest cardiovascular and resistance equipment as well as dedicated areas for stretch and free weights.
Two generously-sized studios will offer an extensive range of classes and activities and dedicated first floor dry changing facilities will provide clean, spacious areas in which to change.
Dry changing facilities will be provided on the ground floor to serve both the large sports hall and new external 3G pitches.
Additional facilities, including two glass-backed squash courts with spectator viewing, a climbing centre and children’s soft play zone will further extend the range of sport and leisure activities available.
A distinctive spa will be created which will include a range of treatment rooms, sauna, steam, hydro pool and relaxation areas.
