Ideas for the future of a Woodley leisure centre are still being welcomed by the council after a consultation has been extended.

Residents are being asked for their views on how to improve Bulmershe Leisure Centre, in Woodlands Avenue, after a promise was made to look at ways to improve and sustain the centre following a cosmetic refurbishment in 2014.

The leisure centre, which houses a swimming pool, gym, sports hall and dance studio, was built in the 1970s, meaning the facilities have become tired and in need of investment.

Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) is looking at possible options to improve the site which include either refurbishing or rebuilding the centre, as well as improving general site issues such as car parking.

The deadline for consultation has been extended to Friday, September 16.

Cllr Angus Ross, executive member for environment, said: “The possibility of rebuilding or refurbishing Bulmershe Leisure Centre is a top priority for us. And we want the local community to take part and be involved in planning the way forward. It’s really important that, before we carry out any work, there is support for our proposals.

“I hope that many of you will be able to come along and share your views and we will also be able to show you examples of other fantastic leisure facilities built around the country in recent years that we could replicate in Woodley.”
