£20m new build White Oak Leisure Centre project approved
Max Associates was appointed by Alliance Leisure (ALS) and Sevenoaks District Council to deliver a feasibility study for the replacement of White Oak Leisure Centre.
Max Associates supported ALS by developing a suitable and innovative facility mix for the new centre, to meet the Council’s objectives to maximise usage and focus on providing facilities for local residents and families in Swanley. The revenue savings will service the loan payments of the capital cost to replace the centre. The centre will include new swimming pools, gym, studios, tag active arena and soft play centre.
Max Associates continued to support Sevenoaks District Council through the tender process to appoint a suitable operator to mobilise and manage the centre once built.
Following recent Council approval, ALS announced that they are “delighted to have been appointed by Sevenoaks District Council to deliver this “historical” £20m project, procured through the UK Leisure Framework (owned by Denbighshire Council). The Alliance delivery team, worked closely with the Council over the last 18 months, from concept to cost certainty, to prepare an amazing new facility for Swanley, fit for the future. Works will start in May (under strict Government Site Operating Guidelines) and the new centre will be complete Sept 2021, to be operated by Everyone Active. The existing centre will remain open throughout, to keep continuity of service for leisure users.”
