Building a healthy future for the Spen Valley
Following approval in August 2018 to build a new £15 million leisure centre in the Spen Valley, we're now excited to share the plans.
Over the past few months, Kirklees Council and our partner Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL), have been working with a variety of user groups and community groups who have shared their thoughts, and have helped shape the plans of the leisure centre.
The existing centre has served the community well since it was initially opened as a swimming pool in 1969, and having been extended over the years with a separate building which provided a fitness suite and fitness studio.
As trends and the demands of modern living have changed, we have recognised the importance of a modern leisure centre in the area, which will support healthier lifestyles of our residents leading to improved health and wellbeing.
This video offers a tour of what the Spen Valley Leisure Centre will look like when completed.
Drop in events
The plans will be displayed at venues throughout the Spen Valley from 18 March - 1 April 2019. This will provide an opportunity for residents to give their feedback and comment on the new facility. Staff will also be on hand to answer any questions residents may have at specific times throughout these sessions.
Please note timelines are subject to change, these are for guidance purposes only.
