Clifton Hill Sports Centre: latest update

In March 2018 the centre suffered significant damage in the severe snow falls which led to the first ever Red weather warning for England.  The unprecedented amounts of snow resulted in water ingress into the building. The operator closed the facility due to concerns about the overall safety of the building structure.

The cost of repairing the building, which includes full replacement of the roof, is estimated to be in the region of £700,000. A further £250,000 of essential enhancements would also be necessary to bring the building up to contractual operating standards.

A report due to be discussed by the council’s Executive on 12th Jun 18 will recommend spending more than £3 million on improving and updating existing facilities at Exeter’s leisure centres.

The budget is expected to be generated through the sale of Clifton Hill Sports Centre site, which has been shut since March.

The report recommends the permanent closure of Clifton Hill Sports Centre.
