Farnborough Leisure Centre and Farnborough Bowl are permanently closed to allow us to build a new leisure centre.

Proposals for a new leisure and cultural hub

We have received £20 million towards our new leisure and cultural hub from the government's Levelling Up Fund. The announcement on 18 January means we can press ahead with our plans for this important development.

For more details, see our news release on our successful bid.

The proposals for the new hub form part of an outline planning application that the Rushmoor Development Partnership submitted in March as a masterplan for the wider civic quarter site.

You can read more about the outline planning application on our civic quarter page.

This follows Cabinet approval last summer for the release of £1.1 million of funding to allow us to move ahead with our plans.

The old leisure centre has been demolished in preparation for the new development.
