Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is ready to give the green light to start the design and construction of the new £13.8 million Redcar Leisure Centre

The Council's Cabinet will meet on Tuesday, May 12 with a recommendation to approve the award of a contract to a preferred contractor for the first stage of the detailed design build contract for the new sports and leisure centre.

If the recommendation is approved this will allow the detailed design stage to start and, following a period of consultation, it is then expected this stage will be completed by November with the publication of the final designs.

The Council's development partner, Persimmon Homes Ltd, have recently completed the tendering process for the design and build contract for the new sports and leisure centre, this is an essential next step in the project plan for the whole Coatham Links development.

Persimmon Homes Ltd, were granted planning permission in May 2007 for the scheme. The new sports and leisure centre is to be provided as part of the first phase of the Coatham Links development.

The new sports and leisure centre will have a six-lane 25metre swimming pool, a leisure pool, a children's pool and a sports hall, including badminton courts.

There will also be a fitness studio and separate junior gym, performance space including a dance floor to replace the current dance floor, beauty therapy treatment, party function room, bar and kitchen.

The scheme also includes provision for two outdoor five a side pitches, high quality changing facilities, reception and cafe area with work planned to start in the late summer."
