The construction work to transform Calne Leisure Centre into Calne Community Campus is now well under way.
More than £3.4 million is being invested in the project, which will improve the facilities and ensure the long-term sustainability of the centre.
This exciting project will deliver a new fitness suite, and the new gym will be twice the size of the existing gym. The wet change facilities will also be entirely reconfigured, delivering a modern village change area. You can see designs for the new centre below.
Construction work commenced in September 2019 and is being carried out in phases to minimise disruption to services
The fitness suite is complete and ready to be used once the leisure centre re-opens following the COVID-19 outbreak.
Work on the swimming pool continues to complete improvement works to the gullies and surrounds, plus the swimming pool tank itself.

Frequently asked questions
Work is progressing well and while there will still be some disruption to services, we are working closely with the contractor to minimise this as much as possible.
The swimming pool will close between Monday 9 March and Friday 3 April for improvement works to the gullies, pool surrounds and swimming pool tank itself.
There will be a requirement to close the sports hall and fitness studio in the early part of 2020 for a period of time, to carry out improvement works to the flooring, but this will be completed one area at a time.
Details of the work schedule and membership adjustments have been communicated to members and displayed in the leisure centre. A full timeline of these works will be published online once dates have been finalised.
A phased approach means that we split the building into sections and complete building work in one section at a time. Temporary facilities will be provided where necessary; this will minimise any disruption to service.
This will need to be agreed with the principle contractor; we expect the works to take at least 12 months.Close
