Leisure Centre Sign

Plans to build a new multi–million pound leisure centre in Bromsgrove has moved a step closer as the District Council has secured a land deal.

This week saw the completion of the sale of land where the former Blackmore House residential home was located in School Drive.

Now Bromsgrove District Council is set to demolish and clear the site centres and submit a planning application for the new facility, which will boast a pool and state-of-the-art gym, this Autumn.

If given the thumbs up then work will start on the site in the new year with a completion date pencilled in for 2017.

Cllr Rod Laight, whose portfolio covers Leisure, said: “This is great news and another step closer to giving our residents the modern leisure centre which they deserve.”
