Woodford early works agreement

Hull City Council has today published a decision record entering into a second early works agreement with Hull Esteem Consortium LEP Limited for the expansion of Woodford Leisure Centre.

The agreement will ensure the work to the centre will remain on track whilst financial close is reached with the contractor.

Work has already started on the extension which will see a brand new 25 metre six-lane swimming pool and learner pool, as well as improved changing facilities.

Additional plans also include new sauna and steam facilities, a café located at the new entrance and enhanced parking facilities. The installation of new environmental technologies will also look to reduce longer term operating costs.

These further early works will commence on 23 November and will include site clearance, design, manufacture and installation of piling mat as well as highways works.

The project expected to complete in early 2018.
