Brough Park Leisure Centre Redevelopment Project

In 2023, the Council was successful with a bid to the Governments Levelling up Fund, receiving more than £17 million to invest in three projects in Leek.

The Brough Park Leisure Centre Redevelopment Project has been awarded approximately £10 million to upgrade and expand the facilities on offer and create a Health and Wellbeing Hub to engage more people in physical activity and positive lifestyle choices.

Following initial design work, technical design guidance and initial feedback from a range of stakeholders, the Council is now sharing plans. A formal planning application for the scheme has also been submitted which you can view and formally comment on via the planning portal.

We've recently asked residents, users, and non-users for their views of the plans for the facility to help refine the design so that the new facilities best meets the needs of the community, particularly those people who do not currently access our leisure facilities.

This consultation has now ended. We'd like to thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey and share their comments. We'll share the results once we've had time to analyse them.

Planning application

We have been working hard to secure further funding into the project, so that an even wider range of facilities could be provided. We hope to be able to make an announcement on this in the coming weeks, but in the meantime the full design, assuming these applications will be successful, has been included within the planning application and the scope of the survey we are seeking comments on below.

These facilities include:

Swimming Pool Facilities

Demolition of the existing swimming pool facilities and rebuild to create a new 25 metre, 6 lane pool as well as a larger teaching pool that will have a range of flexible uses. New changing facilities will be provided including group and family changing and a dedicated 'changing places' facility to support people with disabilities and additional needs.

Health and Fitness Facilities

Health and fitness facilities will also be extended to include a larger gym and second group exercise studio, a new, dedicated, indoor cycling studio and a community wellness suite which would provide space to expand referral based services, with a focus on supporting different health conditions with specialist equipment and instructors.

Adventure/Soft Play Facilities

Adjoining the new main reception area, we hope to provide an indoor soft/adventure play facility, offering a range of activities for children, in a fun and interactive environment.

Social Spaces

Plans also include a new reception space overlooking both swimming pools with associated toilet facilities serving the centre and wider park, along with café seating and servery.

Outside Spaces

We are also keen to enhance the outdoor areas adjacent to the leisure centre, to make the facility more welcoming and engaging. We need your thoughts and ideas to help shape our future plans for these spaces and inform funding applications we are starting to develop to help secure further funding towards them.

You can access and comment formally on the planning application submitted for this project online via our planning application portal.


Our consultation phase relating to designs to improve internal and external spaces at Brough Park Leisure Centre is now closed. We would like to thank all those people that provided their thoughts via the online form after reviewing proposals that were displayed online and both inside and outside the Leisure Centre. The feedback received is being collated and will be considered by the project team over the coming weeks to help refine the design in the context of the overall budget available for the project. This development is a really exciting one for Leek and the surrounding area and we are pleased to be working with local people to help shape these plans.
