Rushcliffe Borough Council (RBC) has revealed it is exploring plans to build a new leisure centre in Bingham, Nottinghamshire.

In a cabinet meeting this week, the council gave the go-ahead for "detailed investigations" into constructing a centre on land owned by the authority in the town to start as part of a possible wider commercial development of the site.

The study will look into the feasibility of building a centre housing a swimming pool, large health club with gym floor and exercise studios, changing rooms and community spaces.

The council said it is "keen to align the leisure centre with the wider ongoing Bingham master-planning process and future housing development".

"We want a high-quality leisure centre and community facility for residents in Bingham that will support healthy lifestyles and complement the growth of the town in the years to come," said Debbie Mason, RBC's deputy leader.

"The cost of building a new leisure centre is significant, so we are undertaking a further study to give careful consideration not only to ensure the location of the site is correct in the wider plans for the town, but also in the long term so the site can give us the sufficient financial return to make it viable.

"Given the planned housing growth within the town, we wish to explore using Council owned land to deliver this potentially exciting project and we should have results of the feasibility study in 2019."

The new centre is expected to cost around £20m to build.

There has been no decision on the fate of Bingham's existing leisure centre, which houses a 25m competition pool, 12.5m teaching pool, fitness suite, sports hall, aerobics studios and an outdoor athletics track.
