New Alton sports centre to be built next door to current facility

New Alton sports centre to be built next door to current facility

Conservative led East Hampshire District Council is set to build a new Alton Sports Centre next to the existing facility.

The proposals, agreed by EHDC’s Cabinet this week, involve constructing an improved, modern sports centre on the current site on Chawton Park Road. The existing centre will remain open until the new centre is in place.

What the new sports centre will offer has not been fully decided but it is planned to include improved facilities and a six lane swimming pool.

A full business case will now be developed and brought for consideration by Cabinet in March 2015. An outline planning application will be submitted, also in March next year.

Cllr Richard Millard, EHDC Deputy Leader, said: “This is a great step forward along the road to providing a new sports centre of the size and quality the people of Alton deserve.

“Building a new centre while continuing to use the current facility means there will be no break in service and also affords us the time to get the new centre right.

“Our job now is to look in detail at what the centre will offer and how we can deliver an enhanced sports centre in the quickest and most cost-effective way.”
