The people of Bulmershe are to get a new £14m leisure centre after Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) gave the final go-ahead for the scheme. It will be run on behalf of the council by Places for People Leisure.

The building will replace an ageing 1970s leisure centre which was deemed not fit for purpose and which will demolished to make way for the new building.

The council conducted in-depth consultations with the local residents, community groups and schools who used the old centre, to identify missing elements and establish what was needed in the new facility.

Councillor Norman Jorgensen, executive member for leisure at WBC, said: "Our aim is to encourage and empower the whole community to take part in and enjoy a range of sports and activities.

"The new centre has been designed to offer the most up-to-date, flexible facilities which will be accessible for all."

The new Bulmershe Leisure Centre will have a health club with a large gym floor and exercise studios, as well as a six-lane, 25m swimming pool and a teaching pool with a movable floor.

It will also include a four-court sports hall, while a café for the community will complete the mix.

The centre is scheduled to open in mid-2020.
