New leisure centre plans revealed

Friday 21 August 2020

Revised plans for Hartham Leisure Centre have been revealed ahead of a public consultation starting next week (Monday 24th August).

The new plans come after previous proposals submitted last year were slated by the public and councillors, with the council's own Development Control Committee sending the plans back for review in January.

Architects have now produced a completely new scheme, with members of the public having an opportunity to comment through an online survey. The consultation period will launch on Monday 24 August and close on Monday 7 September. 

Eric Buckmaster, executive member for wellbeing, East Herts Council, said: "We are delighted to be moving forwards to invest in improved leisure facilities in Hertford. The health and wellbeing of our residents is of upmost important to the council and, at a time when wellbeing is at the forefront of everyone's minds, it is fantastic to be able to show residents our plans to provide these superb new services and facilities."

Following the public consultation period, the project team will review all of the feedback we receive and take those comments forward as part of the next stage in the design process. The team are aiming to submit a planning application by the middle of September.

If planning permission is granted, work will begin in Spring 2021, with completion expected in the Summer of 2022.
