We’re investing £105 million over the ten years to improve our leisure centres, programmes and services. This is a unique opportunity to improve the health and wellbeing of our city, by delivering a quality service that meets the needs of our communities.
This investment forms part of our £400 million physical investment programme.
We're keen that each of the developments offer a unique selling point (USP) which will encourage people to move across the city to use the different facilities.

Timescales for delivery
Construction work on our capital redevelopments is taking place in distinct phases to minimise disruption to our services.
The first phase of this programme focused on the development of Olympia Leisure Centre.
There are also plans for a new leisure facility at the Girdwood Community Hub in north Belfast. We are currently considering options for the development in partnership with Department for Communities.
