New leisure centre on the cards for Egham with town's redevelopment

2:49pm 12th January 2017

Could Egham be getting a new leisure centre, swimming pool and health spa?

Runnymede Borough Council is on the verge of signing an agreement to bring new regeneration projects to the area - starting with these plans. 

Places for People and the Council are finalising the details for a new centre to be built on the same site while the current building remains open until work is complete. 

Egham town centre could also be transformed.

The Council says first, it is keen to consult on town centre development.

The proposed first phase should be set out to the public through consultation.

Paul Turrell, Chief Executive of Runnymede Borough Council, said: "The new leisure centre at Egham will see the Council deliver on a long-held promise to bring a swimming pool to the town.

"I'm sure there will be huge demand for the pools and the other state of the art facilities in the new centre.

"With the support of the leisure centre operating company Achieve Lifestyle, a building programme has been put together that will ensure the old centre remains available while the new building is constructed and fitted out.

"Places for People have extensive experience with this sort of work, both nationally and locally with other Surrey boroughs, so I am very pleased to have them on board."

Places for People, which is one of the UK’s largest property and leisure management, development and regeneration companies, has a strong track record in building sustainable communities and mixed-use developments.

As a not-for-dividend organisation, any profit made by Places for People is reinvested in its homes, communities and services to enrich lives and make a positive difference to communities.

Mary Parsons, Group Director of Place-making and Regeneration at Places for People, said: “In these challenging times for the public sector, we believe that Runnymede Borough Council’s model is an excellent example of using prudent capital investment to both improve local facilities and housing choice and to create a sustainable and profitable investment portfolio.

"As their development partner, we bring our many years’ experience of planning, delivering and managing major mixed-use and mixed-tenure developments to the team to ensure their successful delivery.”
