  14. New Winchester leisure centre set for go-ahead

    A new leisure centre for Winchester is set to take a step forward with planners recommending approval for the scheme at a Planning Committee meeting today.

    The new centre would replace the 42-year-old River Park Leisure Centre which needs at least £3m of repairs.

    In 2016 Winchester City Council had agreed to develop plans to build a new out-of-town centre at Bar End.

    Three years earlier, it sparked protests when it announced plans to rebuild the existing centre and expand it into what campaigners called "Winchester's only park".
