Court Garden Leisure Complex is to undergo essential maintenance work, much of it behind the scenes but also including refurbishment of the pool and changing rooms.
The works will ensure the popular leisure complex remains fit for use. It was built in 1975 and many parts are now at the end of their lifecycle. A condition survey was carried out in September 2016 and in March 2017 Cabinet agreed a budget of £2million for the revamp which will include:
- refurbishment of the existing changing rooms
- refurbishment of the pool and pool hall.
- replacement of the flooring in the sports hall
- mechanical and engineering works including a new combined boiler, some LED lighting, ventilation and general electrical services
- roofing works
Cllr Graham Peart, Cabinet Member for Community, said: “A lot of the work will be behind the scenes, sorting out essential, ‘boring but important’ elements that keep a busy, popular leisure centre operating.
“There will inevitably be some disruption while this essential work is carried out, but we are taking measures to minimise the impact on customers as far as possible.”
