Proposed Leisure and Community Hub: 6 days to respond

new chiltern leisure centre proposalChiltern District Council (CDC) is considering the development of a new state-of-the-art leisure and community hub facility to replace the existing Chiltern Pools, community centre facilities, library and youth centre. It is proposed that the new facility will be located on the existing leisure centre/community facilities site and provide a range of activities, including:

  • 8-lane 25 metre swimming pool with viewing
  • Diving / teaching pool alongside a kids’ splash pad area
  • 4 badminton court sports hall
  • 2 x squash courts
  • Climbing wall
  • Children’s soft play area and clip ‘n’ climb
  • Library
  • CafĂ© area
  • Pool Spectator area
  • Exercise Studios
  • 150 station gym
  • Community centre (events/theatre space and community meeting spaces)

CDC believes that this project has the potential to enhance the local economy attracting both residents and visitors into Amersham to enjoy a range of activities in a new state-of-the-art leisure facility.

Have Your Say – closing date 12th December

The Council is undertaking a public consultation, to understand if residents are supportive of developing a new leisure/community hub and also what facilities they would like to be included.

Recently, two of our Comittee members visited CDC’s offices and fell into conversation with two elderly residents who were extremely exercised by the possible dislocaton of their pottery classes. So if you have a view on this development – good, bad, or simply a question of that nature, then please take the opportunity to add your voice.

The public consultation ends on the 12th December 2016. Please visit www.chiltern.gov.uk/leisureconsultation to complete the on-line survey and express your views.
