Blaby District Council - update on Huncote Leisure Centre

We are delighted to announce that Huncote Leisure Centre is expected to reopen in October.

Councillors approved the long-term plans for the leisure centre at Council on Tuesday 19 July and agreed to the proposal that once remedial works for landfill gas on the site have been completed, the building will reopen.

We been in discussion with Everyone Active, who manage the leisure centre, regarding the future of the site. Several options were discussed, including the permanent closure of the site. More »

However, with the former landfill site in Huncote needing to be made safe whether the leisure centre is open or closed, Councillors were committed to ensuring this valuable community facility will reopen.

To enable to leisure centre to reopen, work has been prioritised at the front of the site, where the building lies. Once this area is safe, the leisure centre can resume operations for members and visitors. Leicestershire County Council's Children and Family Wellbeing centre will also reopen within the leisure centre.

Following the works at the front of the site for the reopening of the leisure centre, important remedial work will continue across the rear of the site. This means that the BMX Track, sports field and the footpath are expected to remain closed until April 2023. » Less
