We have plans for a new state-of-the-art leisure and cultural hub in Farnborough town centre.
Leisure and cultural hub consultation
We have launched a pre-planning application public consultation on the latest designs for the new Farnborough leisure and cultural hub and would like to invite you to take part.
The designs have been drawn up by our architects before we go ahead with our aim of submitting a detailed planning application for the site this summer and we would like to hear your views.
The consultation runs from Monday 26 February to Sunday 24 March and builds on previous public engagement. It includes a consultation website and special drop-in sessions to view the designs and give your feedback.
For more details, please see our current consultations page.
Keep informed about new hub
If you would like to be kept informed about our proposals and how you can get involved, please let us know.
Proposals for the new leisure and cultural hub
Our Cabinet unanimously agreed at a special meeting on Tuesday 3 October to proposals to drive forward the delivery of the new leisure centre and cultural hub.
The major redevelopment project will include:
- A new leisure centre, which will offer an eight-lane swimming pool, training pool with moveable floor, six-court sports hall, fitness and spin studios, and soft play, together with a large café and space for performance
- A cultural hub, which will include space for an art gallery, digital lab, collaboration space and studios
- A new skate park and destination play area
In addition, the development will provide accommodation for the council offices and voluntary sector, and potentially a new library and associated community space, along with a new mobility hub.
Wider civic quarter site
The proposals for the new hub are part of the wider civic quarter masterplan scheme, for which our Development Management Committee granted outline consent in February 2023.
You can read more on our civic quarter page.

You will find details about alternative local leisure facilities on our Leisure facilities pages and about our Aldershot Pools and Fitness Centre, Farnham Leisure Centre and Places Leisure Camberley on the Places Leisure website.
