Plans for new Lichfield leisure facilities

We are working on a project to create a new leisure facility, which includes a swimming pool, in Lichfield within the next five years.

This is to make sure there is a swimming pool and leisure facilities ready for when Friary Grange Leisure Centre closes to the public by the end of 2024. Find out more about our plans to keep Friary Grange Leisure Centre open.

We have launched a new website to provide news and updates on our leisure centre project.

Progress so far

We have set aside £5 million to provide future leisure facilities and appointed Max Associates to support this process. This includes choosing a site and consulting on plans, securing planning permission and completing the build within five years.

A report that puts forward a preferred site for the planned leisure centre was considered by the Leisure, Parks & Waste Management (Overview & Scrutiny) Committee on 23 September 2020.
