Planned improvements to Withdean Sports Complex

 The council, in partnership with Freedom Leisure are planning some major improvements to Withdean Sports Complex. The proposal involves the construction of a glazed extension to the front of the existing indoor tennis centre to include:

 ·         A new entrance and reception space including café/bar facility and associated seating;

 ·         A new, larger fitness suite with space for 125 equipment stations (approximately 2 ½ times the size of the existing fitness suite);

 ·         A new glazed link between the tennis centre and squash centre to provide a more coherent customer journey and to improve security and control of access;

 ·         Increased studio space for exercise and dance classes;

 ·         Extended and completely refurbished male and female changing facilities and toilets.

 See below for copies of the outline plans.
