  • 2 dance/aerobic studios
  • Spinning class studio
  • A gym with 100+ pieces of equipment
  • wet changing facilities
  • dry changing facilities
  • sauna
  • large, medium and small community rooms

Work to date

A design team including architect, civil engineer and quantity surveyor has been appointed by the Council in order to start the design work for the new facility and is working of the layout of the proposed new building.

Next steps

Following the review of the Council's sports facilities a decision will be taken on the way forward with the project.
