An artist’s impression of the proposed leisure centre

West Denton is to get a new multi-million-pound leisure centre. 

It is being funded with £19.8m from the Government’s national Levelling-Up Fund and up to £2.5m from Newcastle City Council and its leisure partner GLL.  

When it opens in 2024, the building will offer a sports hall, gym, café, library, community space and 25-metre swimming pool. It will be one of the biggest single investments in West Denton for many years and offer the community lots of new opportunities for sport, recreation, and social activities. 

Subject to planning approval, work is expected to start on the centre in the winter of 2022 and open in spring 2024.
