We're progressing plans for exciting, new leisure facilities in Halifax
We have explored a number of options for the future of leisure in Halifax and our chosen approach brings together both leisure centre facilities and a swimming pool at the existing North Bridge site. Due to the significant maintenance required to operator and update the existing facilities, a recent feasibility study concluded that the combined approach would be the most cost effective solution, by incorporating the existing main sports hall and viewing balcony.
In 2010 we delivered two new leisure sites in Brighouse and Sowerby Bridge. These sites are very well used and we hope to use feedback and lessons learned from these projects to inform and develop plans for the Halifax site.
In May we'll launch our public consultation to ensure that our plans for the new facility meets the needs of the people who will be using it.
Not only do these plans form part of Calderdale’s Next Chapter, which aims to transform and regenerate Calderdale, they also support Active Calderdale, Calderdale's new physical activity movement.
