Construction work on the pool has begun at the Alan Higgs Centre and is due to be completed in summer 2019.

The £10.5 million project will bring a host of brand-new facilities, alongside the 8 lane, 50-metre pool with moveable floors and beams, including:

  • 500 spectator viewing gallery.
  • Health suite inclusive of sauna, steam-room and jacuzzi.
  • Swimming education rooms.
  • Fitness suite expansion.
  • Function room expansion.
  • Updated changing rooms.

Once in place the new pool will become host to public swim sessions, lessons, water-based sports and a variety of events and galas.
