South Gloucestershire residents are being invited to have their say on possible improvements to Bradley Stoke and Longwell Green Leisure Centres.
Both centres currently experience very high demand and the council is considering how facilities could be improved to better meet the needs of the community.
At the same time, the council is looking to reduce the amount of subsidy it pays to Circadian Trust, as the operator of the two centres.
Initial ideas for improvements to facilities include:
- Extended gym facilities
- Better dance studio/exercise class space
- Activity rooms that can be used for meetings and parties
- Improved catering facilities (at Longwell Green)
- Improved facilities for children and families
- Improved facilities for a wider range of sports
- Additional parking provision
- Reconfiguring internal layout to make more efficient use of space
The public consultation period runs until 30th September.
Further information is available on the council’s consultation webpage: www.southglos.gov.uk/consultation, via telephone number 01454 868154 or from local South Gloucestershire leisure centres, libraries and ‘one stop’ shops.
