Farnborough Leisure Centre and Farnborough Bowl have been demolished 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.
The proposals for the new hub formed part of an outline planning application that the Rushmoor Development Partnership submitted as a masterplan for the wider civic quarter site. Our Development Management Committee granted outline consent for the scheme in February.
You can read more about the outline planning application and full details of the bid on our civic quarter page.
This follows Cabinet approval in summer 2021 for the release of £1.1 million of funding to allow us to move ahead with our plans.
Alternative local leisure facilities
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.
