This month Alliance Leisure will start work on a multi-million-pound development to improve leisure and learning opportunities for residents in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire.  And to mark the occasion, a group of stakeholders, partners and the local community cam together to official break ground at the construction site.

A new 3,000m² Leisure and Learning Hub, made possible by a £14 million investment from Towns Funding, will replace the existing Station Sports Centre, adding a 6 lane, 25 metre swimming pool and changing village, a gym and fitness studio as well as a TAGactive indoor adventure play area and outdoor play facilities. In addition, the site will incorporate a digital inclusion learning centre to enable people of all ages to upskill through access to information and distance learning courses. This will be supported by a series of dedicated meeting rooms and a large café area to encourage social interactions.

The multi-functional community development, designed by lead architects, Pozzoni, will be managed by Alliance Leisure through the UK Leisure Framework, owned and managed by Denbighshire Leisure, with ISG named as principle build contractor.

This is an exciting project because of the integration of leisure and education services. Located just behind the High Street in Mablethorpe, with its own dedicated car park, the development offers good accessibility creating a much-needed activity and learning provision for everyone to enjoy. Residents have been calling for an indoor swimming provision for many years so it is fantastic to finally be able to deliver this.

East Lindsey District Council is leading the development with the support of Boston Borough Council and South Holland District Council through the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership.  

The Station Sports Centre, currently managed by Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture, will remain open throughout the construction of the new facility to minimise disruption to the community.

The team at ISG are looking forward to beginning the work on the new Mablethorpe Leisure Centre next month. We are looking forward to engaging with Mablethorpe residents throughout the build and bring regular updates to the community on the progress of their new facilities
