Designs of town's leisure centre makeover unveiled to public

Aaron Wise 13th Sep, 2017

DESIGNS which show how the extension of Evesham Leisure Centre may look have been unveiled.

They include a new activity studio, dance studio, extended fitness suite, extended beauty treatment suites, meeting/consultation rooms, more toilets and changing facilities.

The centre is also set to increase parking by around 90 spaces to ensure the extra facilities can be easily accessed.

Since the Abbey Road centre opened in 2009, it has grown in popularity and Wychavon agreed to fund an extension to keep up with local demand.

Depending on the outcome of the planning process, work is anticipated to start in spring 2018 and be complete and open for January 2019.

The leisure centre will remain open throughout the construction period and disruption will be kept to a minimum during the works.

Coun Lynne Duffy, portfolio holder for resources and deputy leader at Wychavon, said: “It’s fantastic to see these designs so that we can start to visualise exactly what these new facilities could look like.

“Extending the centre to keep up with our health conscious residents is great news and we can’t wait to move the process on to the next stage.”

Residents with any comments regarding the proposals should e-mail elc.comments@wychavon.gov.uk by Thursday, September 21.
