Further preparatory work for the planned development of Kenilworth’s state of the art new leisure centre will now take place following recent archaeological investigations.

With the archaeological investigations having found nothing of significance on the Castle Farm site, the next stage of work will begin this week with the erection of hoardings, clearing of vegetation and removal of fixtures and fittings from the building. Simultaneously contracts will be signed with AR Demolition and Kier in the coming days.

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

“We are happy that significant progress is now being made on site making way for the imminent construction phase for these wonderful new facilities.”

Although the majority of the car park will now be closed the Council plans to keep at least six spaces available for public parking throughout the forthcoming works. The skate park and children’s playground will remain accessible for the entirety of the project.

The development will see the replacement of the existing recreation centre with a multi-million-pound facility featuring a sports hall, 80 station gym and fitness studios. 

Further updates on the Castle Farm Recreation Centre and Abbey Fields Swimming Pool redevelopment plans are available on the Warwick District Council website.
