Construction work is now underway on a £12 million leisure and sports complex on Wilson Playing Fields in Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire.

Funded by Hyndburn Borough Council as part of the borough’s leisure transformation plans, the new Wilson Sports Village will include a four-lane, 25-metre swimming pool, a fitness suite, a sauna and steam room, group exercise studio, café and a large changing village.

Dedicated changing facilities will also be built for the various, existing outdoor sports facilities.

Wilson’s Sports Village will also optimise energy efficiencies with several environmentally-friendly solutions – supporting Hyndburn Borough Council’s carbon reduction strategy and ambitions to achieve net zero. These include air source heat pumps, solar panels and the utilisation of low and zero carbon technologies.

The facility was designed by a team led by Pozzoni Architecture and is being developed through the UK Leisure Framework by Alliance Leisure, in consultation with Hyndburn Borough Council, Hyndburn Leisure and Sport England. Principal contractor is ISG, while Bradshaw, Gass & Hope are contributing the structural design requirements and CGP MEP the MEP design.

Marlene Haworth, leader of Hyndburn Borough Council, said: “This development reflects the council’s commitment to placing the health and wellbeing of our community at the heart of our ongoing strategy.

“In addition to creating new indoor active opportunities for everyone in the community, the building will add-value to the existing outdoor facilities to create a leisure hub like no other in the local vicinity.”

Tom Gardner, Business Development Manager, Alliance Leisure, added: “We have assembled a brilliant team with vast experience in leisure development to deliver this project.

“Together we will build a facility that provides an energy efficient sporting hub for the community to enjoy for many generations.”

Wilson’s Sports Village is expected to fully open to the public in the Spring of 2025.
