Plans submitted for new Kirkby leisure destination

Ashfield District Council has submitted plans for Kirkby’s brand new leisure destination.

Following consultation with customers, residents and the general public, the plans have been “moulded with the user experience in mind.”

Councillor Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council said: “Today is a landmark day for this project. The new leisure centre will see huge benefits for all corners of our society, especially with its state-of-the-art facility mix.

“As well as the economic and social benefits, the new destination will also enable us to develop high-quality spaces to form a vibrant hub for our community. The plans will create a variety of opportunities for more inclusive programmes for all kinds of groups to be a part of.

“It’s fantastic to see how the plans have evolved throughout the consultation process. I’m sure that as a result this leisure centre will become a key focal point for our community.”

The facility mix includes:

  • Water Space (25m pool with flexible floor and separate leisure water pool)
  • Sports Hall (inc. Cinema)
  • Health and Fitness suite with full gym
  • Two multi activity studios
  • Group Cycling studio
  • Well-being toning and Rehabilitation suite
  • Indoor adventure climbing wall

Once planning permission is granted, work is expected to begin in the autumn.

The current Festival Hall Leisure Centre site will remain open during the build of the new leisure facility. Once the centre is open, the current building will be demolished and make way for additional car parking.
