Belfast City Council to invest £60m in leisure centres

Belfast City Council has unveiled plans to transform three of its leisure centre with a £60 million cash injection.

It has revealed initial designs for Andersonstown, Brook and the Robinson centres. Andersonstown will focus mainly on water-based family fun, while Brook will receive a new pool and an outdoor centre of excellence for gaelic games and soccer.

The Robinson Centre is to become an aquatic centre of excellence for the city.

The designs were drawn up following consultation with local communities and advice from experts.

In a statement, the council said the initial plans were part of its £105 million leisure transformation programme.

Councillor John Hussey, Chairperson of Belfast City Council’s Strategic Policy and Resources Committee, said: "The Council is making its largest ever investment in leisure provision. The aim is to help create an active Belfast by providing quality leisure services to our citizens. This is the latest stage in that process.

“I encourage everyone to come along to these consultation sessions and have their say on how leisure provision in Belfast is going to look for the coming decades. "
