New Great Yarmouth leisure centre could cost £26m to build
A replacement building for Great Yarmouth’s Marina Centre leisure complex could cost up to £26m to build, it has been revealed.
Last night it was revealed that Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s full council will look at a recommendation that the centre be replaced with a new building along the Golden Mile.
The council has looked at six options for a new building, with building costs ranging from £20,759,000 to £26,278,000.
While the plans are still at an early stage the council says the new leisure centre could be built by 2022 if the go ahead is eventually given.
Next Thursday a full meeting of the council will look at a paper called Marina Leisure Centre - New Build Options Appraisal.
The option recommended to be taken forward includes an eight-lane 25m pool with poolside spectator seating; learner pool; poolside health suite with sauna, steam and spa; interactive indoor climbing; sports hall; 100-station health and fitness gym; fitness studio; spin studio; squash courts; café and 250 parking spaces.
Further exploration of including an additional leisure water facility at the centre is also recommended.
It is recommended the council spend £120,000 to progress the project.
