Plans for a £20million new sports and leisure centre in Berwick have been unveiled. Proposed facilities include a 25m swimming pool, a learner pool and leisure water, a sports hall, fitness suite and studios, a lawn green and indoor bowls hall, spa facilities, café and soft play, an outdoor all-weather pitch and adult care and teaching facilities.
The new development aims to provide a high quality, inclusive and modern community leisure facility for the town. Consultation has been carried out to hear directly from residents as to what they would like to see provided at the new centre.
The proposal will also include new landscaping and public open space as well as an overall increase in parking. The new centre will be situated on the site of the existing Swan Centre and will be run by Active Northumberland, the charitable trust that manages leisure services across the county on behalf of Northumberland County Council.
Construction is expected to start later this year will be phased alongside the existing facility’s demolition providing consistent access to leisure facilities during the development.
Information boards will be on display at The Swan Centre for the full week from March 19.
