Proposed new leisure centre for Deal

We are currently working on more detailed proposals for a new leisure centre in Deal. The council's Cabinet has agreed a budget to progress these works further, with a view to having proposed designs presented to them in July 2020.

A decision will then be made as to whether these plans should be taken to the next stage. It's important to note that all plans are subject to further detailed feasibility work/financial viability assessment and could change.

Design of the proposed new Leisure Centre

Any new build of the Deal Leisure Centre will take place on the existing site. The council is actively discussing potential funding with Sports England as part of the next phase. A project team of consultants and architects are working with us to draw up feasible designs. The image below shows a possible layout of the facilities and is subject to change as part of the design work currently underway.
