Work starting on Chiltern Lifestyle Centre site

Work on the new Chiltern Lifestyle Centre in Amersham is about to begin and the construction company, BAM Construction, will be moving onto the site to start development on Monday 18 November.

This is the beginning of an exciting project which will provide a state of the art leisure and community facility for Amersham and surrounding areas.

During the building work, Chiltern District Council and BAM Construction will ensure all activities on site are undertaken with care and consideration for surrounding neighbours, the local community and general public, and aim to minimise any potential disruption.

The site manager will be available to speak to if any residents have any questions or comments throughout the development.

The first phase of construction involves closing the Civic Centre (library) car park.

Amersham Library has already been temporarily relocated to the council offices in King George V House, opposite the site, so that residents can continue to use the library throughout the build. Opening hours are 9am - 5pm Tuesday - Thursday, 9am - 4.30pm Fridays and 10am - 4pm Saturdays.

As the development progresses the on street parking bays on King George V Road including the disabled bays outside the entrance to the Council offices will also close. 

To accommodate access by disabled users to the Council offices or library, four new disabled bays are being created in KGVH car park which will be available for blue badge holders to use from Monday 18 November, with a three hour maximum stay. Blue badge holders may also park in the standard parking bays in KGVH car park.  

Other members of the public who previously may have used the library car park are asked to park in the other nearby public car parks in Amersham; Chiltern Pools, Chiltern Avenue, and the multi-storey car park.

Further information and updates will be published on the Chiltern Lifestyle Centre website: and you can also follow Chiltern District Council on Facebook and Twitter for news.
