A new £20m leisure centre in Berwick has been given the green light by planners. Construction work is also due to start next year on a £21m leisure centre in Morpeth.
Advance Northumberland, the development arm of Northumberland County Council, is project-managing both schemes supported by Henry Riley and several other key partners. Both schemes are being funded by the council.
The existing Swan Centre is being demolished in phases to ensure continuity of leisure services for local residents.
It will be replaced with a new facility with a 25m pool, sports hall, an outdoor all-weather football pitch, fitness suite, fitness studios and spa facilities.
Construction work is due to start by the end of this year, with the centre operational in 2021.
Construction work is also due to start next year on a £21m leisure centre in Morpeth.
Property and construction consultants Henry Riley will provide quantity surveying, employer’s agent and principal designer services for the scheme.
The new centre will include a 25m swimming pool, sports hall, spa facilities, fitness suite and studios. It will also have a new community services hub that will include a library, customer service centre and adult learning area.
The centre is due to open in 2021.
