What improvements would you like to see at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre?

Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

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.

  1. How many parents are aware that a creche runs Monday to Friday mornings to enable them to use the facilities whilst children are taken care of by qualified staff? Better advertising of this is required.

  2. Not on my patch: The question was what improvements you would like to see? All you have done is complain about people smoking. At least those addicted to smoking are visiting a centre dedicated to improving health, no?

    A constructive response might be to suggest allocating a smoking area on the premises that would not intrude on those entering the building.

  3. Reduce the costs. It’s pretty expensive in comparison with other gyms in town etc. I know there’s a pool etc. But a reduced cost for limited facilities option would be good.
