Extension planned for South Manchester leisure centre

Manchester Council recently revealed new plans for a major redevelopment of Hough End Leisure Centre off Princess Parkway, which originally opened in 2015, representing a £9 million investment.

The newly unveiled designs incorporate all-weather third generation football pitches to host amateur matches, along with dedicated changing areas that will require the site, comprising 15 acres, to be expanded.

Property owners looking to expand their homes in Manchester and the Wirral with house extensions, along with firms in need of additional space, can depend on professional architects in their local area for assistance. With expert knowledge of local legislation regarding planning and experience of making the most of available room onsite, architects work closely with their clients to ensure building projects stay on track.

The centre has hosted a wide range of amateur sporting events for decades. Along with football, other sports catered for include rugby, cricket and the Irish favourite, Gaelic football. After structural issues raised health and safety concerns, the onsite changing pavilion was deemed unfit for service and player have been using temporary cabins to change at the Broughton Park Rugby Club in the interim.

A statement from local councillors regarding the proposal commented:

“Manchester council has a commitment to providing top quality leisure facilities, so residents have everything they need to live healthier and happier lives.”

The new extension will also accommodate a visitor café, a viewing gallery and an expanded gym, along with multiple rooms designed for social functions and fitness classes. Additionally, the former pavilion used for changing will now be demolished to create more onsite parking.
