Refurbished swimming pool changing rooms are to be provided at Exmouth Leisure Centre.

Operator LED Leisure Management Ltd says the work, which will begin in September and take around four to five months, will see the creation of a ‘modern, village-style’ changing facility, including dedicated schools and small group changing areas, extended family changing and disabled facilities, opening directly onto the pool-side.

LED says, in partnership with East Devon District Council, it will be working with Alliance Leisure on the facilities, on which it has carried out ‘extensive’ customer consultation. The pools will remain open throughout the work, with temporary changing facilities in place.

The announcement follows the completion of a £2million project last year, which developed the centre’s non-swimming facilities by expanding the gym and adding a climbing facility, toning studio and cycling studio.

Leisure manager Simon Findel-Hawkins said: “LED is very excited to have the opportunity to update and improve the wet-side changing area and reception. These areas are in need of updating and the proposed changes will benefit customers for years to come.

“We will work hard to ensure the pools remain open throughout the works and hope the changes will encourage even more people to use our pools, as well as the extensive range of facilities now on offer at Exmouth Leisure Centre.”
