Kingston Council is committed to building a new swimming and leisure centre in Kingston town centre.

Following an agreement on procurement earlier this year, the council has used the UK Leisure Framework to bring Alliance Leisure on board to oversee delivery of the project, with award-winning architect Roberts Limbrick appointed to bring a revised building design to life.

The leisure centre will deliver the range of activities that residents and stakeholders said they wanted to see, in a more efficient two-storey building that will be designed to ensure the project can be delivered within an affordable budget.

The outline plans for the new centre include an 8 lane swimming pool and a teaching pool with spectator seating, as well as a four court sports hall, studio spaces, gym, squash courts, and a cafe. Reflecting a new business model it also includes features such as a wellbeing suite and spa facility alongside a larger soft play area than in the previous project.

January 2024 Public Exhibitions

Thank you to all of those who took the time to come along to one of the recent public exhibitions, or let us know their thoughts online. We’ve had almost 300 responses, and the project team is currently reviewing these. 

The next round of public engagement will be taking place in May 2024, where we will be able to show designs for the building.
