Future of Hermitage Leisure Centre





32 members of the public came to the Parish Council meeting last night to hear about the latest proposals for leisure facilities provided by North West Leicestershire District Council.  

Bev Smith, Chief Executive, and Councillor Alison Smith MBE, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community Services, briefed everyone about the current stage of investigations. Information is still being compiled for the District Council to make their decision about new leisure services - firstly to be considered by the Cabinet next month and then for the full Council to have detailed reports and look at the impact before they decide the matter on 21 November.

Lots of questions were asked and answered by the guest speakers.  Two important disclosures were made:

  1. The decision on whether a new leisure centre is to be built is to be taken independently and will not rely on any financial asset of the Hermitage site.
  2. If the district council determine to build a new Leisure Centre, the existing Hermitage Leisure Centre will close.  There will be a full public consultation on future use of the HLC site BEFORE any decisions are made.
