Meeting about future of River Park Leisure Centre

Press Release: 02/09/2013

Sports clubs, stakeholders and individuals with an interest in the future of River Park Leisure Centre in Winchester are being invited to a meeting to hear how the City Council is considering the project and to have a chance to input into the process.

The meeting, at the Guildhall in Winchester on Thursday 26 September (7.30pm), will consider the key decision faced by Winchester City Council on whether to replace the leisure centre, where and with what facilities.

Councillors and officers will present the work they have done so far and outline the issues, financial considerations and options under consideration.

Cllr Keith Wood, the Leader of Winchester City Council, said:

Our guiding principle is to ensure that quality leisure centre facilities continue to be provided for our residents at a cost that Winchester can afford.

We are working on the blueprint and the method of delivery with a view to agreeing this in due course. Before that I want to take this opportunity to share the work so far with those who are interested and listen to their views so that they can inform our final decision.
