Transform Kingston Logo

Our vision is to reshape our historic town centre to make it even better for our residents, local businesses, students and visitors. Investing in and reinvigorating Kingston is at the core of our plans to transform the town centre by: 

  • Embracing Kingston’s culture and heritage to create more opportunities
  • Driving a holistic heritage-led regeneration approach
  • Boosting economic growth by attracting in new major businesses
  • Diversifying the economy beyond retail and igniting a vibrant cultural scene
  • Providing much-needed new housing including affordable homes for local people

At the heart of this is the creation of a new community leisure centre on the site of the former Kingfisher Leisure Centre, which is accessible for all residents, offers a range of facilities that benefit everyone and is built to last.
