Green light for Urmston Leisure Centre redevelopment

Plans have been approved for the £6.5m redevelopment of Urmston Leisure Centre, as part of Trafford Borough Council’s plans for leisure improvements across the borough. Architects 5 Plus have re-designed the 1980s leisure centre, which will be transformed by building contractor Willmott Dixon.


The design


The planning application includes:

  • a new double height front section of the building with a welcoming lounge/cafe area, modern touch screens for class and activity booking and a soft play area. 

  • Large, brightly coloured pods either side will house two fitness studios, changing areas and children’s party rooms, as well as an 8m high clip and climb adventure climbing experience.

  • A brand new, glass fronted gym with functional training area will be created on the first floor, with views across the front of the building as well as into the refurbished pool at the back of the centre.

  • The ground floor facilities will also include a wellness studio.

 

A proposed timeline for the Urmston Leisure Centre redevelopment will be confirmed this spring and will include measures to ensure the impact on customers is kept to a minimum during the works, which are expected to complete in December.
