Goole Community Hub
Delivering a modern, mixed-use leisure facility
We are onsite replacing the current East Riding Leisure Goole facility with a new community hub that is fit for the future.
Initially, we will demolish most of the existing facility, with just the swimming pool building and sports blocks remaining. Work will then begin to add 1,600 square metres of new floor space, allowing the new hub to include a wide array of facilities for the local community, including a food court, library, customer service centre, laser tag area, ten-pin bowling alley, soft play, and learner pool with health suite.
The new facilities will help to create a mixed-use destination for local people to visit, enabling the hub to compete more effectively with nearby centres.
We will also be refurbishing the existing swimming pool, changing facilities and spectator area, and improving the external facilities, which will include the creation of additional car parking spaces for visitors.
A sustainable approach to leisure centres
The new building will be more sustainable than the previous building, and will incorporate sustainable energy technologies such as solar panels and air source heat pumps. This will help to make the building perform more efficiently.
Nick Heath, director at Willmott Dixon, said:
“The all-new Goole Hub will provide a connection between culture, recreation and leisure in one easily accessible location and there is a real ambition to create a new destination within the town. We’re therefore really pleased to have been selected as the preferred bidder by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to deliver this exciting project.
“Aging leisure facilities are fast becoming out of touch with modern requirements, so it’s our job to not just deliver a building but create a high-quality multipurpose destination for the people of Goole, which will enhance lives and serve multiple generations. It will incorporate sustainable energy technologies – such as solar panels and air source heat pumps – to ensure it performs more efficiently and runs as healthily as its users.
“Parts of the existing facility will remain in use while the new building is constructed, so we’re looking forward to getting on site and beginning works to deliver a new hub for the town.”
Councillor Nick Coultish, portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:
“This proposed scheme is very exciting for Goole and will provide a wonderful new facility for the town and for East Riding Leisure members.”
Replacing an outdated leisure centre with a vibrant community hub that will provide a range of facilities and activities for local people to enjoy.
