Harpenden’s Leisure and Cultural 21st Century Vision

The ambition is to extend and transform the swimming pool site into one modern integrated leisure centre for a variety of sports and activities. It is envisaged this will contain:

  • The swimming pool 
  • A new larger learner pool 
  • A new gym enabling significantly more machine stations
  • A new sports hall
  • A new café 

The existing sports centre could then become a new arts and cultural centre integrating a museum display area dedicated to Harpenden’s historic past. It will have a larger theatre than the Halls, more function rooms and an extensive bar and refreshments area.

Community Engagement next steps - January 2017

The summary of the briefing sessions, workshop and feedback session produced by Imagineplaces the independent facilitators, received 868 website visits from stakeholders and residents. This was a tremendous response and we are really pleased that so many people have engaged in the process so far. Thank you for all for your contributions which are helping shape the latest concept designs.

Space & Place the architects for the Leisure and Cultural development are now developing the next set of concept designs. The revised concept designs, accompanied by a questionnaire will be published here on the council website during the week beginning 23rd January 2017.

Please note that due to financial limitations or operational impracticalities not all the views and suggestions contained within the report or subsequent stakeholder submissions will be included in the next set of concept designs In the meantime, you are still able to submit feedback and comments via harpendenleisureandculture@stalbans.gov.uk which will be fed into the on-going engagement process.
