Following the approval of plans to build a new, state of the art sport and fitness facility on the site of North Bridge Leisure Centre, the centre will be closing on 6 March 2022.
The new centre will greatly enhance the leisure options in the Calderdale area, helping more people to be active and supporting people of all ages and abilities. The fantastic facilities planned for the site include a six-lane, 25 metre main pool and separate large teaching pool, dedicated spinning studio, adventure climb, sauna, café, Centre for Independent Living, eight court Sports Hall, large gym/fitness suite and dance studios.
The new-build also includes energy-efficient technologies to contribute towards the Council’s carbon-neutral targets. The Council has built a significant number of carbon-reducing features into the design of the building to help reduce the impact on the environment and help tackle the climate emergency.
Following closure on 6 March, the building will be emptied of all equipment, fixtures and fittings and enabling work will take place to isolate utilities. Pre construction preparations will also begin, including construction stage surveys. It is anticipated that the new centre will be completed by early 2024.
