Friary Grange Leisure Centre project

Lichfield District Council is working with Staffordshire County Council, The Friary School and Freedom Leisure to keep Friary Grange Leisure Centre open.

To do this, we need to agree a number of licenses, leases and agreements.

The leisure centre is also in urgent need of repair, such as leaking roofs, old boilers, electrical issues and more.

In 2019, we agreed to set aside £695,000 to fund repairs to the leisure centre and to invest £5 million to build a new leisure facility. 

We have a project board, made up of officers and councillors, who are overseeing the short-term and long-term plans.
