Work progressing well on new Queen's Park Sports Centre

Work is progressing well on the project to build the new Queen's Park Sports Centre.

The new centre is currently being built on the site of Queen's Park Annexe.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council's cabinet member for town centre and visitor economy, gives an exclusive tour of the site.

The building work contract is managed by construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall, who also built the Arc Leisure Centre at Matlock.

The new centre is due to open in early 2016. The existing Queen’s Park Sports Centre on Boythorpe Road will remain open until the new centre opens.

The centre is paid for by £6.725 million from Chesterfield Borough Council, £2.5 million from Chesterfield College, as part of a dual use agreement, £2 million from Sport England’s Strategic Facilities Fund and £25,000 from Squash England.
