Kingston Council “is committed to building a new swimming and leisure centre on the same site as the old, unsafe Kingfisher building, in Kingston town centre”


The following is from the Council’s ‘Transform Kingston‘ website


Following an agreement on procurement earlier this year, the council has used the UK Leisure Framework to bring Alliance Leisure on board to oversee delivery of the project. Their multi award-winning team has delivered over 230 leisure developments across the country. They have since appointed award-winning architect Roberts Limbrick, a leading contributor to the design of commercial and public leisure facilities for over 25 years, to bring a revised building design to life.

The leisure centre will deliver the range of activities that residents and stakeholders said they wanted to see, in a more efficient two-storey building that will be designed to ensure the project can be delivered within an affordable budget. The outline plans for the new centre include an 8 lane swimming pool and a teaching pool with spectator seating, as well as a four court sports hall, studio spaces, gym, squash courts, and a cafe. Reflecting a new business model it also includes features such as a wellbeing suite and spa facility alongside a larger soft play area than in the previous project.
