The Council’s Cabinet held a special meeting to discuss options to invest in and develop the town and have agreed to:
· the creation of a ‘myplace’ arts and media centre for young people
. a leisure centre and swimming pool developed between Kirkleatham Street and Ridley Street
· a new library and civic and community facilities
· a multi-storey car park.
The total cost of the scheme, which will be developed in two phases, is projected to be £36.9 m, providing significant investment and job opportunities to the area.
The leisure centre facility will include a six lane, 25 metre swimming pool, leisure and children’s pool, eight court sports hall, junior gym and fitness suite and performance and dance areas.
