Over the last year, Brighton & Hove City Council has conducted a comprehensive programme to identify possible alternative sites for the new facility. Several options were assessed on their suitability based on factors such as location, size and accessibility.
Two sites were identified as offering potential for the new facility. These are:
- The current King Alfred Leisure Centre site.
- Land to the south of Sainsbury’s car park at the junction of Old Shoreham Road and the A293.
Over the last year we been working with independent experts, Continuum Sport and Leisure, and their architects, Faulkner Brown, to review the options for delivering the new facility. This work, together with the outcomes of the recent engagement will inform the council’s decision on the final choice of site.
A report bringing together the findings from all of this work will be considered by the Culture, Heritage, Sport, Tourism, and Economic Development committee in the summer.
