West Norwood Health & Leisure Centre: closure of pool and other facilities - update 1

Further to our earlier story, Better have updated the online statement to provide a clearer picture on the closure and necessary repair works. Lambeth Council has also responded to our representations and promised further updates. In addition to the statement from Better:

  • Phase 1 of the work of refurbishing the male and female changing areas is complete.
  • Phase 2 of the work of refurbishing the remaining changing areas and showers and locker area is due to be complete ahead of schedule, by end of March 2023.
  • Roof works – There are ongoing discussions between ProjectCo (the PFI company working on refurbishing the swimming pools), Vistry (the company responsible for design and build) and the Council. A key date in these discussions has now passed and we expect further information shortly on how and when the roof repairs will be effected and in turn when the swimming pool can be reopened.
