New Leisure Centre Proposal 

We have a project proposal for a new Leisure Centre to be included in the Neighbourhood Plan. The vision is “To establish and develop a new integrated Multi-purpose Leisure, Sports, Arts and Social facility in The Deepings, with parking and excellent access for the whole community”.

The key features are:

  • Project to be funded through SKDC area development fund in recognition of The Deepings as a rapidly growing population.
  • The emerging new Local Plan proposes high growth, and a replacement for the current Leisure Centre – which is recognised as no longer adequate to meet demand – is an essential component of that growth.

Consideration will be given to the emerging Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan policy implications, such as:

  • Allocation and availability of a suitable plot of land
  • Consultation on possible alternative locations
  • Provision of safe walking, cycling and other non-car access
  • Relationship with current sports, arts and leisure facilities
  • Links with the new Deepings Green Walk.

We welcome your views on these proposals. This has the potential to be a significant new facility and attraction for all the people of the Deepings and the surrounding area.
