Halesowen Leisure Centre's new changing village will open next month

A brand-new changing village will open at Halesowen Leisure Centre next month as part of phase two of the centre’s multi-million-pound revamp - however the facilities pool has been delayed.

It was also due to reopen this summer, but is now expected to be back in use in October due to delays in the supply of essential materials. Once it reopens, it will mark the completion of the centre’s transformation, which has included a brand-new entrance and reception area.

The revamp has also included a new, high-spec gym, soft play area and café and a wellness suite with power assisted gym equipment. Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said:

"Halesowen Leisure Centre has undergone a major revamp and we’ve had some fantastic feedback from centre users.

"The changing rooms and pool are the last elements to be completed and while the changing rooms are due to open in August, we have been advised by contractors that the opening of the pool will be delayed due to issues with the supply of essential materials.

"I know many customers can’t wait to get back in the pool, that includes me too. We have made it clear to the contractors that they need to complete the work to get the centre fully open and people back in the pool as quickly as possible.

"I will personally be making sure that they are held to account for these delays and ensure the public purse is protected."
