News release


Opening of the new leisure centre delayed

Thursday 1 September 2016

Unfortunately a small number of snagging and technical issues have meant that the Council is having to postpone the opening of the new leisure centre and swimming pool in Workington. It was due to open on Saturday 3 September 2016.

One of the issues relates to the learner pool which we hope to know more about next week. We are working with our partners, including Robertson Construction, to ensure the issues are resolved as soon as possible.

Alan Smith, Leader of the Council said: “It is a blow for this to happen so close to the centre's opening date. However we have said all along that we want to provide the best facilities for the people of Allerdale and we want a little more time to get things sorted. This is a very complex and technical building and our most important priority is quality - we want to get this right first time and get the very best value for money.”

In the meantime our partners, GLL will reopen the centre at Moorclose from Saturday and provide a full range of services there. Please check their website or call the centre on 01900 61771.
