We have embarked on a five year programme of redevelopment of the district’s leisure centres, as part of the council's commitment to improve our leisure centre offer and to encourage more people to become more active.
"We’re delighted that we now have plans in place to ensure we have high quality leisure centres across the district that will become places communities can be proud of. When our leisure centres were first built, they gave our communities a great sense of pride, such as Deben Pool, which couldn’t have been built without the support and hard work of local groups and residents.
However, our leisure centres are now ageing and need updating to today’s and future standards so that they have the best facilities and become the destinations of choice for our residents.”

One of the 10 critical success factors in the East Suffolk Business Plan focuses on the need to provide high-quality, modern leisure centres that the whole community can enjoy, with state-of-the-art equipment, that come at no additional cost to the tax payer.
The work builds on the progress made by the Leisure Strategy formed in 2014, which sets out how improvements to the leisure provision will be made across the district, over the next ten years.
