CRANLEIGH LEISURE CENTRE. 

Waverley’s Full Council has ratified the new Executive’s recommendation to spend £12.7m (some of which will be borrowed) to provide a new leisure complex on a new site in Cranleigh.

Officers have already begun work on a detailed scheme with a firm of external consultants to identify exactly where the new building will be sited. But villagers are asking on their Facebook Group  – “why are we waiting?”

Once the new location of the building has been identified – it is believed it will be located very near to the existing building in the Village Way car park – officers will report back to the Executive with firm proposals but haven’t said when.

The present state of the Cranleigh Leisure Centre is very poor, and the boilers have been a source of concern there for some considerable time. Although well-used it is long past its sell-by date, and desperately needs refurbishment.

Some money towards the cost of the new building will come from the 106 contributions – made by developers as their contributions towards improving Cranleigh’s infrastructure.

However, villagers are claiming that although new homes are being provided and families are moving in – no major infrastructure improvements have yet been made, and it is time these caught up.

Schools are full; water pressure is down; burst water pipes are now an everyday occurrence and little or no major road improvements have either been made or are on the cards.  

So when will Waverley Borough Council use some of those 106 financial contributions made by developers? Or, have these contributions actually been made?

Much ado about the location of a new Cranleigh Leisure Centre.

Will Waverley’s leisure centres soon get a facelift?

Millions will be poured into the borough’s leisure facilities – but Cranleigh could be the biggest winner with a £12.7m jackpot.

  1. One of the Overview & Scrutiny Committee’s – sorry we cannot remember which one.

    Sorry to hear the cost of borrowing has just gone up 1% – any idea why? And, will this affect the viability of the Cranleigh project – or will it be a case of “Poor old Cranleigh” misses out again?
