Halifax’s New Leisure Centre To Complete By 2024

Following the approval of plans to build a new, state of the art sport and fitness facility on the site of North Bridge Leisure Centre, the centre will be closing on 6 March 2022 to allow work to commence, with completion of the new centre planned for early 2024.

Nearby centres in Brighouse, Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden will remain open, offering a wide range of gym and swim facilities that users of North Bridge are welcome to use. The council will be putting more classes on at these centres to provide you with even more options to stay active while the work is underway.

You can visit their website for more information on the facilities available and the new and improved programmes at these sites. Members have been contacted with the option to freeze or cancel their membership.

Top-class, combined facilities for Calderdale’s diverse communities

The new, multi-million pound leisure centre will greatly enhance the leisure options in the Calderdale area, helping more people to be active and supporting people of all ages and abilities.

The fantastic facilities planned for the site include a six lane 25 metre main pool and separate large teaching pool, dedicated spinning studio, adventure climb, sauna, café, Centre for Independent Living, eight-court sports hall, large gym/fitness suite and dance studios.

The new-build also includes energy-efficient technologies to contribute towards the Council’s carbon-neutral targets. The Council has built a significant number of carbon-reducing features into the design of the building to help reduce the impact on the environment and help tackle the climate emergency.

Construction work on the new centre is due to start soon. The project is being delivered to a tight timescale to benefit local communities as soon as possible and to use the money granted to Calderdale by Central Government from the Levelling Up Fund before its spend deadline.
