Slough regenerates leisure facilities

Plans to make Slough one of the most active towns in the UK are on track following the completion of the third leisure project this year, says the council.

Langley Leisure Centre has undergone a £6.5m redevelopment to revitalise and extend its outdated facilities with upgrades to the swimming pools and reception area as well as a new fitness suite, new exercise and spinning studios plus a café and vending area in the reception area.


The project follows the £5.7m regeneration of Salt Hill Activity Centre where the former tenpin bowling facility has been transformed into a multi-functional family activity hub with a six-lane tenpin bowling alley with its own bar, and new leisure zones featuring a high rope course, trampoline park, caving area, soft play and party rooms.


Both projects were delivered by Morgan Sindall as part of Slough Urban Renewal (SUR), a joint venture between Morgan Sindall Investments Limited and Slough Borough Council, designed to drive regeneration in the town.


Meanwhile, work continues on the £18m leisure centre on Farnham Road, which is due to open to the public in March 2019.


The projects form part of Slough Borough Council’s investment of more than £62m to regenerate leisure facilities across the borough.
