Deben Leisure Centre is the first leisure centre to receive an upgrade, followed by Leiston and Felixstowe.

The refurbishments started at Deben Leisure Centre in September 2017, with the other centres following in subsequent years.

Proposals for Deben Leisure Centre are being developed to take account of the current and future market and with the benefit of customer feedback.  They will include an additional floor added to the front of the building, with purpose built family changing areas and separate changing facilities for use by schools.

Two studios are also being provided, one to incorporate a spin room and the other for fitness classes, which will also be available for community hire. The new gym has been designed to be more spacious, featuring modern equipment and the pool area will feature a new health suite with a steam room, sauna and ice feature.
