Nottingham architects CPMG have submitted plans for a combined office, civic and leisure facility for Rushcliffe Borough Council.
The new leisure facilities will include a six lane, 25 metre length swimming pool, an additional training pool with leisure elements, a sports hall, three squash courts, a 150 station gym, three fitness studios, a refurbished indoor bowls hall, snooker room and café.
The centre will consolidate existing leisure facilities situated at Rushcliffe School and the civic centre on Trent Bridge onto one site, replacing the existing Rushcliffe Arena complex.
Amelia King, 24, of Musters Road is looking forward to using the new centre:
The plans so far look very exciting. I’m a keen swimmer so it would be great to have an improved pool.

“I also believe that by having all the facilities centralised in one place will bring the community together and not only be a sports hub, but also a social hub.”
CPMG director, Richard Flisher said: “This is a landmark development that is very important to the local community. We are particularly delighted to have been asked by Rushcliffe Borough Council to work on it as many CPMG staff live locally and will be users of the facilities when complete.”
