Leisure Centre re-vamp starts
Published on Thursday, 29th June 2017
A £2.5m re-vamp of Northallerton’s leisure centre has begun.
Construction work on the Hambleton District Council run facility began this week – it includes a gym extension, toning studio and two studios for group exercise and spinning classes, and new, improved changing rooms.
The authority is working with development partner, Alliance Leisure Services Ltd, on the large scale redevelopment scheme. The first phase includes work on the gym extension, the outdoor changing rooms and sports hall refurbishment. Access to the current gym is unaffected during this work.
Centre members and regular customers have been informed via letter or email – with information on the work also displayed within the centre and on: Hambleton.gov.uk/zest/hlcproject
“This is a very exciting scheme for Northallerton – and Hambleton District Council,” said Leader of the Council, Councillor Mark Robson.
“It will mean we can offer an improved programme of activities to help promote the health and well-being of people of all ages and levels of fitness.”
The lion’s share of the project will be borne by Hambleton District Council itself – councillors will invest £2.3 million to extend and refurbish the health and fitness facilities. The remaining £213,000 comes as National Lottery funding from Sport England – which is specifically targeted at improving the swim change facilities.
