South Oxhey Leisure Centre extension - Suspension of works

01st April 2020

The works to South Oxhey Leisure Centre are being undertaken by Vincent Stokes on behalf of the Council’s Leisure Management Contractor, Sports and Leisure Management Ltd (SLM).  ​ 

They are being suspended as from 3 April until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the inability to meet Health and Safety requirements under the latest Government guidelines and lack of supply chain to service the site. 

Construction works were due to be completed in June with the site being fully operational by the end of that month. When completed it will include a new four-lane pool and teaching pool, changing rooms, two studios, spin studio, café and multi-functional room as well as the gym and sports halls. 

Cllr Chris Lloyd, Leader Member for Leisure, said: “The Council remains committed to the development of South Oxhey Leisure Centre and the circa £9 million spend on the project. We will continue with this work once it is considered safe and appropriate to do so. The health and safety of our contractors is paramount to us.” 

All Leisure Centres are presently closed following Government guidelines.
