Residents living in Kings Norton, Longbridge, Northfield and Weoley wards are invited to a discussion next week about a new sports and leisure centre in the Northfield District.

It follows the announcement by Birmingham City Council last year that nine out-of-date swimming pools across the city will close and six new ones will be built.  Northfield is earmarked for a new leisure centre and local councillors are keen to hear what facilities local people want and need.

Northfield District Chair, Cllr Brett O'Reilly, said: “I would really urge local people to attend the meeting next week and join the discussion about the leisure facilities they would like to see in their community.  We have a fantastic opportunity to build a modern leisure facility and we want to ensure that we deliver a centre that reflects the needs and wishes of local people - for instance do they want a pool, a gym, a sports hall or astro-turf pitch?  And how will they get there - by car, bicycle or on foot?”

The workshop takes place on Wednesday 30 July at 6.30pm at The Factory Youth Centre, 5 Devon Way, Longbridge. 

To book a place contact the Northfield District Office on 464 9812 or email northfield@birmingham.gov.uk  If you can't make the meeting, visit the Be Heard website and complete the questionnaire by 15 August - https://www.birminghambeheard.org.uk/place/new-sports-leisure-centre-for-northfield-district
