HAVE YOUR SAY!

Our design team has spent the past few months reviewing all of the important feedback submitted during our summer consultation, updated the designs and we would now like to hear your thoughts once again! Please complete our survey below to have your say on the latest plans.

If you have any questions or would like this survey in a hard copy or alternative format please get in touch with us. For more information on the different ways to have your say, and details of our events, please visit our Contact us page.

1. You told us previously that making the new leisure centre fun and family friendly was important to you. That’s why we have included facilities like the toddler pool, teaching pool with its opportunities for water play, a clip-and-climb and climbing wall, an improved outdoor playground, and soft play.

New sports hall

2. We are also keen to provide outstanding facilities for competitive swimmers and sportspeople. That’s why we have included a 25m pool suitable for short course competitions and other water sports, a modern gym, sports courts suitable for a range of sports like badminton and basketball, a rooftop football pitch, and squash courts.

3. We are committed to better connecting the new leisure centre and our historic Museum and Library to the town centre by re-orienting the leisure building to face the town centre and creating a new walking route through the site and past the Museum and Library into Fairfield Recreation Ground. We have also strengthened the connection between our new leisure facility and the historic buildings.

a. Do you think our plans are an improvement on the existing site layout?

b. Do you think you will be more likely to use our Museum and Library as a result of these changes?

4. We are aware that the Kingfisher Leisure Centre had limitations in terms of accessibility and that’s why making the new leisure facility accessible for everyone is a key priority. That’s why we have included features like pool pods and hoists, hearing loops, step-free access, and more. Do you think our plans accomplish this goal? (0-100 with 0 being strongly disagree and 100 strongly agree)

5. We are conscious that the old Kingfisher was not sustainable and have put sustainability at the heart of our plans (through features like solar/PV panels, all-electric energy supply, rainwater harvesting, recycling existing materials where possible etc).

6. Do you have any other comments?
