Figures released by the Local Government Association show nearly two-thirds of UK leisure centres are in need of urgent investment and Hull is leading the way by investing in its leisure centres.
Over the last few years, Hull City Council has invested in both Woodford and Ennerdale Leisure Centres, with both buildings undergoing major makeovers. Now, work is currently underway to refurbish Albert Avenue and Beverley Road Baths.
The Beverley Road Baths, Grade II Listed Building is undergoing a £2.9million investment programme of upgrades. The external facade and roof are currently undergoing a refurbishment, including roof repairs and recovering, conservation roof light replacement, stone and masonry repairs along with window replacement, repair and redecoration.
Development works continue on the second phase of delivery at the baths which includes the refurbishment of the interior, seeing the provision of a new gymnasium and steam room, general refurbishment and extensive renewal of mechanical and electrical plant and equipment, due to commence October 2020 for completion May 2021
Working with local contractor Hobson & Porter, development works are ongoing to Albert Avenue Baths that will see the existing facility undergo a £4 million transformation works to include the refurbishment of the existing facility, the provision of a new Sports Studio along with the upgrade and reopening of the facility’s historic lido following a 25 year period of closure.
