Life Leisure Grand Central – Improvement Works Update - JUNE 2017
As reported in February, as part of the agreed investment in Life Leisure Grand Central, phase one of the works will address the Health Suite and the fitness changing rooms. Designs have been submitted to prospective contractors who would intend to start work in July 2017, with a view to completion of phase one by November 2017. There will naturally be some disruption during these works. More details will be available as we move closer to a full programme plan.
