First public consultation results

The Council asked residents for their views on building a new facility bringing a leisure centre, library and community centre into one new building.

The consultation ran from 5 November until 12 December 2016 and we had 2,386 responses, with overwhelming support.

  • 80% agreed or agreed strongly with the proposed development
  • 70% agree it's appropriate to develop facilities as one development
  • 80% agree the new facility should offer a wider range of sport, leisure and community activities
  • 70% agree the new facility should be developed on the existing site
  • 90% agreed leisure and community facilities should continue to operate while construction of the new facility is underway

Consultation results


A further public consultation took place in September last year regarding the land swap proposal.

Residents were also asked for feedback on plans to address concerns raised in the previous consultation.
