RESIDENTS are being urged to have their say on the finer details of multi-million pound plans for Bromsgrove’s new sports and leisure centre.
From today (Monday) to October 16, the consultation documents, including plans and drawings, will be on show at the current School Drive centre and at the Council House, Burcot Lane.
There will also be an online consultation for people to say what they would like to see in the centre.
Subject to the submission external funding, work on the £13million centre will begin in Spring 2016.
Bromsgrove District Councillor Rod Laight, whose portfolio covers leisure, said: “We are investing in this new facility which we believe will serve our residents for many years to come – which is why we want to hear from them to make sure we have built in the facilities that were brought forward in previous consultations and that are affordable.”
As part of the consultation, at midday on Monday (October 5), there will also be the chance to meet the project manager, architect and civic/structural engineer from the developers, Mace, along with the mechanical, electrical and plant engineers.
Then on Tuesday and Wednesday (October 6 and 7), the project manager and architect will be on hand at the venue from 1pm to 4pm and between 5pm and 7pm respectively to talk about the project.
Richard Smith from Mace, said: “We are delighted to hear from and indeed meet the residents, groups and organisation who will be using the Bromsgrove Sports and Leisure Centre.
“They are our customers and all their views will be considered as part of the final plans.”
