Scarborough Leisure Village
Location : Scarborough | Status : Ongoing | Sector : Sport, Stadia
Wrenbridge are development partners to Scarborough Borough Council for the delivery of the new leisure village.
The scheme comprises a 2,000 capacity stadium that will enable the football club to return back to the town and includes a state of the art 3G pitch that will ensure year round use by all of the local community. Alongside the stadium, a leisure centre is being provided that includes a 4-court indoor sports hall, squash courts, gym, dance studio and community facilities. A new eight-lane swimming pool will also be included as part of the project and utilises one of the training pools used for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympics demonstrating a continuing legacy from the Games for all of the UK.
In order to fund and deliver the new Leisure Village, Wrenbridge will be developing three separate sites within Scarborough for a combination of education, retail and residential uses together with public funding from Sport England and the Football Association. On completion, the Leisure Village will be owned by the Borough Council and will be a fantastic facility for the local people of Scarborough and the wider region. Works are progressing well on site and are due for completion by May 2017.
Our development proposals for the Weaponness site alongside the new leisure village include an education campus. This comprises a new University Technical College (UTC) for 14 to 18 year olds as well as a new Scarborough campus for Coventry University (CUSC). Wrenbridge have promoted these sites and are also acting as development managers for the CUSC. Works on both education facilities have been completed and are open and operational for the start of the academic year in September 2016.
Of the other development sites, the former football ground site at Seamer Road is being developed for a new food store for Lidl and low cost housing by Gleeson. The remaining site at Filey Road can only be developed once the new leisure village has been delivered and is likely to comprise residential uses and a family pub.
