Leicester City Council has enlisted the support of Alliance Leisure to convert a sports hall into a flexible workout space.  All works are being delivered via the UK Leisure Framework, owned by Denbighshire Council and Managed by Denbighshire Leisure.

The project is part of a £2.3 million leisure regeneration scheme, which incorporates redevelopment works at three leisure centres across the city.

Cossington Street Sports Centre and Evington Leisure Centre will undergo modernisation to create physical activity environments more in-line with the needs of the communities they service, while Aylestone Leisure Centre will involve a remodelling of the fitness space.

“The current facility mix no longer reflects the needs of the community,” said Andrew Beddow, head of sport services at Leicester City Council.

“In consultation with Alliance Leisure, through the UK Leisure Framework, we have designed a solution which will solve these issues and enable more local people to benefit from our leisure services.”

Works will roll out from this month, starting at Cossington Street Sports Centre, and aim to complete by the end of this year.

The Alliance Leisure development team includes Saunders Boston Architects and Etec Contract Services.
