IMAGES have been released showing how two of the Dudley borough's leisure centres could look if major revamp plans go ahead.

Halesowen Leisure Centre has been earmarked for a range of improvements to the gym, plus a new children’s play area - and a planning application has been submitted for the Pool Road site.

Meanwhile, discussions continue about potential improvements at Stourbridge's Crystal Leisure Centre.

Images released today show what the leisure pool at the ageing Bell Street centre could look like after planned improvement work, as well as how the changing rooms might look after a makeover.

The plans come as work is well underway to build a new£18.2million leisure centre in Dudley in Constitution Hill.

Councillor Ian Kettle, Dudley Council's cabinet member responsible for leisure centres, said: "There’s a lot happening with leisure centres at the moment. We are already seeing the new Dudley Leisure Centre taking shape but with the potential for improvements at Halesowen and Crystal, the future looks very bright for leisure centre users."

Halesowen Leisure Centre is in-line for a new look entrance, adventure play area and café.

There will also be major changes to the swimming pool to cater for learner and advanced swimmers.

The plans also include new ‘village style’ changing rooms, pool-side viewing area and a state-of-the-art fitness suite.

Both Halesowen and The Crystal leisure centres will have significant repairs carried out as part of the proposals.

The new Dudley Leisure Centre will include a 25-metre, eight-lane swimming pool and a teaching pool with spectator provision. There will be a four-court sports hall suitable for indoor football, badminton and more.

The investment will also include a 100-station gym and fitness suite, two group exercise studios for a wide range of exercise classes and an immersive cycle studio.

For families with younger children there will be a soft play area with catering facilities and a party room, and a café open to all users of the centre. And for those who want to relax after their workout session there’s set to be a sauna.

There will also be power-assisted gym equipment for specialist support which may be particularly beneficial for those recovering from injury, older customers and those living with long-term health conditions.

The facility will also be well located for public transport with a Metro stop planned next to it and the nearby bus interchange.
