Northallerton Leisure Centre – Hambleton District Council
The new facilities at Northallerton Leisure Centre were opened officially on the 20th March 2018 by Champion Great Britain runner Marc Scott.
The £2.5m investment project, commissioned and funded mainly by Hambleton District Council with a £213,000 contribution from Sport England towards swim changing improvements, has seen the construction of a new 5,100sq ft extension to house a fully equipped fitness suite supplied by Technogym and complete with new functional training area and rig. The gym will operate 24/7 365 days a year thanks to new access control systems.
A toning suite has also been added to attract a new segment of the market and the original fitness space has been renovated to include a general purpose studio and a group cycling studio.
The investment has also seen general repair and upgrade works to the existing water slides, flumes and wave machine in the pool area. The pool surround has been replaced and new shower facilities added, as well as the Changing Village being completely reconfigured. In addition to the inclusion of more lockers and changing cubicles, the facilities now boost Changing Places approval, recognising the improved accessibility for people with a disability.
