£2m investment for leisure centre improvements 

Local leisure centres will be getting a £2 million makeover.

The council’s cabinet gave the green light to invest in improvements and repairs to Sheppey Healthy Living Centre, Sheppey Pool and Swallows Leisure Centre.

Alongside the investment, the contract with Swale Community Leisure (SCL) – the trust that manages the leisure centres, supported by Serco – could will be extended by 5.5 years.

Cllr Sarah Aldridge, cabinet member for health and wellbeing at the council, said:

"Our leisure centres are already popular with residents and visitors – we had almost 600,000 visits in 2016 alone.

"We want to increase their use even more, by investing in some essential repairs, and providing new facilities and equipment.

"The council is committed to promote and encourage residents of all ages and abilities to become more active with the many health benefits recognised with a more active lifestyle.

"This will not only benefit existing users, but help attract new members who weren’t able to access these types of facilities previously."

The improvements planned include:

Swallows Leisure Centre:

Sheppey Pool and Sheppey Healthy Living Centre:

Work is expected to begin by the end of the year and will include some closures during the works, which users would be made aware of in advance.
