Slough to approve leisure plans

Slough Council’s Cabinet is set to agree a multi-million pound refurbishment of Langley Leisure Centre and the ten pin facility at Salt Hill Park.

Both sites will be refurbished starting in June to coincide with the start of a new leisure contract.

The refurbishments total £14.6million of investment by the council in the town’s leisure facilities on top of the provision of a new leisure centre on Farnham Road and the comprehensive refurbishment of the Ice Arena.

Built in 1997, Langley Leisure centre is one of the borough’s prime leisure sites but much of plant and other machinery is coming to the end of its useful life.

The refurbishment will be undertaken by Slough Urban Renewal – the 50:50 joint venture between the council and Morgan Sindall Investments Limited.

The council is now proposing an extreme activity centre on the site of the old ten pin bowling alley – providing not only bowling but a whole range of activities including ski plex, trampolining, caving and hire-wire climbing.

Councillor Joginder Bal, commissioner for environment and leisure, said: “The council is investing millions of pounds in leisure facilities in a way that hasn’t been seen for generations.

“The amazing plans for these two sites will bring them not only up-to-date but relevant and useable for many years to come.”
