Plans revealed for new Bingham leisure facilities

Plans for new leisure facilities in Bingham have gone on display.

Specialist consultants have worked with Rushcliffe Borough Council to produce the designs for the new facility in line with the Bingham Masterplan that shows artists’ impressions for the sports element of the Bingham Hub.

The new Chapel Lane site in the town could provide a 25 metre six lane swimming pool with spectator seating and teaching pool, fitness centre, spin and exercise studios, cafe and a community hall with capacity of 300.

The new facility could open by January 2022.

The Hub will more widely offer a community, office and leisure development consistent with the Bingham Growth Board’s aspirations to develop the site as part of a key gateway between the current town centre and the growth of its housing developments to the north.

In February the Council’s Cabinet approved recommendations to draw up plans for the facility that could create up to 90 jobs.

Bingham Town Council are being consulted on the requirements for the community hall and final detailed designs of all aspects of the new facility are being reviewed that could lead to an application for planning permission in the coming weeks.
