Rushmoor Borough Council are to receive £20 million for a state-of-the-art leisure centre, library and cultural space.
£20 million extra investment from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund means Rushmoor Borough Council are able to step up their plans for a brand new leisure centre in Farnborough. And rather than just a replacement centre, new state-of-the-art leisure facilities, alongside library, mobility hub, cultural and community spaces - including a playground and skate park - will form a new Leisure and Cultural Hub, and help create a heart for our community in a regenerated Civic Quarter that the whole borough can be proud of.
I joined leader of the Council, Cllr David Clifford, on site days after the announcement to discuss the next steps for the project. Designs for the scheme are already well underway, and I'll be continuing to work with the Council to make the very most of this incredible cash injection.
