A planning application for a new leisure centre on Westbridge Park has now been submitted. You can see this from our planning access page. The planning reference is 17/26207/FUL - and there is an opportunity to comment as part of the normal planning process.
It's part of an around £9.5 million investment in leisure facilities for Stone.
The centre would have a six lane 25 metre swimming pool, gym and fitness studios.
Here are the proposed plans (pdf 7mb).
The planning application was submitted following feedback from the questionnaires and consultation days at Westbridge Park. It is expected to be considered by the planning committee in July.
Feedback from the consultation showed more than 90% said they would use the new facility. And nearly 80% said it was 'important' or 'very important' to have the facilities under one roof.
NB: The Leisure Centre is only part of the investment. Later in the summer we will be collecting views of residents, organisations and businesses on plans for a multi-use games area, skate-park and new play facilities as part of the leisure offer for Stone.
