West Denton Leisure Centre Consultation 2022

West Denton is to get a new multi-million-pound leisure centre, and we would like to hear your views about our ideas for it.

Introduction and timeline
It is being funded with £19.8m from the Government’s national Levelling-Up Fund. When it opens in 2024, the building will offer a sports hall, gym, café, library, community space and 25-metre swimming pool. It will be one of the biggest single investments in West Denton for many years and offer the community lots of new opportunities for sport, recreation, and social activities. Subject to planning approval, work is expected to start on the centre in the winter of 2022, and open in spring 2024.

What we would like you to do
We want to hear what local people and community groups think about our plans for the leisure centre, so we are holding events to discuss it, and we have an online survey. We will also be meeting with local groups, and will be posting information about the proposals for the centre to local people as well - the flyer we are posting can be seen here: Outer West Leisure Centre. You can give us your views by:

If you have questions about this, or need this information in another format, such as large print, please contact Noel Hanlon at: noel.hanlon@newcastle.gov.uk.
