‘Exciting’ plans approved for new County Durham leisure complex development

Plans have been approved to create a new wellbeing and community hub in Bishop Auckland, bringing together leisure activities and library services under one roof.

A planning committee has approved an application to create a new-build leisure centre on the site adjacent to the current Woodhouse Close Leisure Complex. The new building will include two new swimming pools, along with a sauna and steam room, and a modern gym with the latest equipment and technology.

A Move Hub will be installed featuring power-assisted equipment for people who need support to improve strength and mobility, including those recovering from health conditions. It will also feature a soft play centre for children, a café, and a new library, replacing the current Woodhouse Close Library.
