HuncoTe Leisure Centre - Closure Update

NEWS RELEASE - Blaby District Council

Huncote Landfill Gas Update

Since closing Huncote Leisure Centre and the surrounding site on 02 November, Blaby District Council has undertaken important mitigation work to ensure the safety of the site following the discovery of elevated landfill gas levels.

An essential stage of our work is set to be completed this week. Once this work has finished we will take further landfill gas measurements. This means that the site will not be ready to re-open on Friday (26 November) but we will provide a further update on our plans on this date.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but want to reassure everyone that our ongoing works are important to make the site safe.

For anyone with queries about any upcoming events or classes at Huncote Leisure Centre, please contact Everyone Active by calling 0116 402 8088 or email
