Alliance Leisure is partnering with Pellikaan Construction Ltd to deliver a £20 million community hub in Melksham for Wiltshire Council.
In addition to awarding a grant of £1.6m, Sport England played a significant role in the design development stages of the project to ensure the new Melksham Community Campus provides the right leisure facilities to meet the needs of the community.
As a result, the new campus includes a six-lane swimming pool and a learner pool, fitness suite, fitness studio, library, sports hall, community meeting rooms, a café and office space.
This is in addition to the existing outdoor bowls provision, a new cricket pavilion and two new tennis courts. The campus project has also already successfully delivered the Oakfields football and rugby facility and Fifth Skate Park at other locations in the town.
Construction work is now underway on the campus, which is expected to open by autumn 2022 and is being delivered via the UK Leisure Framework which is owned by Denbighshire County Council and managed by Denbighshire Leisure.
