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.

In this photo you can see the main entrance area taking shape as concrete is poured to create the first floor. The steelwork for the gym area on the first floor is now in place and the walls of the community pool are being cast. You can see the full plan for each floor further down this page.
This video offers a tour of what the Spen Valley Leisure Centre will look like when completed.
