Councillors visiting the construction site
Work is progressing well and should be complete in just over a year’s time on a new health & leisure centre opposite West Norwood rail station. Following campaigns by residents and councillors the council is working with the NHS to create a joint health & leisure centre which will including a 100 station gym, 25m swimming pool & dance studio as well as a GP surgery and clinics.
We are now looking for a new name for the centre. Any suggestions are very welcome!
Work should be completed in the next 2 months on the final details of the plans for the new leisure centre and health centre for West Norwood on land at the end of Devane Way off Knights Hill opposite West Norwood station. The new government has confirmed its support earlier this year for the funding but the Treasury has just added another step to check the project.
It is hoped that this new hurdle will not add any significant delays so construction work can start early in 2012. Work is already in underway to tackle the Japanese knotweed on the site as this weed can grown through concrete! (Building work will be starting on the nearby new primary school in October.)
