LUF Projects Underway in Staffordshire

Alliance Leisure are proud to be delivering Staffordshire Moorlands District Council’s Levelling Up Fund (LUF) Round 2 allocation, encompassing the refurbishment and revival of three sites in Leek town centre.

Since being appointed by the council in March 2023, Alliance have successfully progressed works on the £17m worth of projects encompassing Staffordshire Moorlands District Council’s agenda to regenerate Leek town centre, with two projects on site already and the third due to begin soon.

The projects, which are both culture and leisure-oriented, include:

  • Installation of three new food and beverage units
  • Installation of Wi-Fi, CCTV, insulation, and heating
  • Creation of a new entryway
  • Restoring the Victorian character of shop frontages.

Nicholson Institute

Refurbishment of the multi-use Grade II listed building.

  • Refurbishment of lower ground floor to create student welfare provision
  • Refurbishment of museum
  • Renovation of basement to provide more space for library
  • Creation of new wedding and event venue

Brough Leisure Centre

Revitalising a tired leisure facility to provide residents with more ways to get active.

  • Creation of new gym
  • Creation of new fitness and cycling studios
  • Refurbishment of changing facilities

Kieran Townsend, Transformation Business Partner at Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, says of work on the project so far:

We have been immensely impressed with the speed, ease, and efficacy of working with Alliance Leisure on our LUF projects. They have helped us to progress three large projects to the point where one has commenced on site and with the other two following quickly behind the second and third due to start this summer/ autumn. For such large and varied projects to be moving so quickly is fantastic for the council, and we eagerly await their completion to enhance the wellbeing of our residents.
