Let's hope it is in the town, NOT in one of the villages.

Wiltshire Council has provided an update on its progress in investing in leisure provision in Trowbridge, as it looks to provide provision that supports the community for the long-term.

As agreed in the budget in February, Wiltshire Council has allocated £25m to update leisure provision in the town, as part of its capital investment programme.

The council has appointed Max Associates to carry out work to gather an understanding of the current leisure needs and priorities of the community. This will involve engaging with a range of stakeholders and reviewing data to ensure that the final plan that is put forward is the right one for the community and will be sustainable over the long-term.

Once that work has been completed, the council will look at the viable options for possible locations for new provision. A number of factors will be considered throughout the entire process, including the impact on public health; the local economy; community; environment; and financial sustainability.

The update on the leisure centre was heard at Trowbridge Area Board on 7 July.
