Update on the mutli-million- pound redevelopment of Abbey Fields Swimming Pool and Castle Farm Recreation Centre.

Following last month’s approval by the Planning Committee for the multi-million-pound redevelopment of Abbey Fields Swimming Pool and Castle Farm Recreation Centre, Warwick District Council has identified Kier as its preferred contractor for the second stage of the procurement process prior to final agreement for construction.

Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Tourism and Leisure, Councillor Liam Bartlett commented:

“We’re really excited to be working with Kier, who have a strong track-record nationally for high quality, low carbon leisure projects. Their submission was outstanding, and we are confident that they can bring with them their impressive eco-credentials and expertise in their field.”

“In addition, it’s important that we prepare for the closure of the facilities early next year by making alternative arrangements with local sports providers for tennis and basketball and other indoor sports details of which will be announced next month.”

Everyone Active’s Contract Manager, Gareth Wagg added:

“We welcome the news that a preferred contractor has now been selected. It’s exciting to see the project start to progress and we’re looking forward to working with both Kier and Warwick District Council on the redevelopment of Kenilworth’s facilities.

“Everyone Active is prioritising plans for the relocation of activities and colleagues for the duration of the redevelopment and I encourage our customers to visit our Kenilworth Development web page to be kept up to date with the latest information."

Further updates on the next stage of the Kenilworth Leisure redevelopment plans will be made available on the Warwick District Council website.
