A First Look Inside Neath’s New Leisure Centre Development
Drone footage of Neath’s new Town Centre leisure centre due to open at the end of this month has been released and it gives a breathtaking fly-through of the completed multi-million pound project.

The development has delivered a major leisure, wellbeing, shopping and learning zone for Neath’s town centre. It is due to open next week on 30 January 2023.

The striking town centre building features a six-lane 25m swimming pool with associated learner pool, a health suite, two group exercise studios, a 100-station gym, retail floorspace, child care facilities, a café and a modern library.

The scheme, built by Neath Port Talbot Council’s appointed contractors Kier Group Plc, is designed to have a major beneficial impact on the town centre, increasing sustainability, vitality and footfall and providing a major boost for health and wellbeing.

Neath Port Talbot Council Leader Cllr Steve Hunt, who can be seen paying a visit to the new development in the drone images, said: “It will also drive the recovery of the town centre post COVID-19, increasing vibrancy and visitor numbers in the centre of Neath, helping the delivery of a commercially viable redevelopment at a time of uncertainty for Britain’s traditional town centres.

“The leisure centre, library, gym and retail space will bring new activities and investment into Neath’s town centre.

“It will strengthen the town’s commercial core and will help more people lead a healthy lifestyle while improving wellbeing facilities for the town and surrounding areas.

“This development will attract many thousands of additional people into the heart of the town centre, including many families, every week and we look forward to welcoming them.”

The scheme has been part funded by The Welsh Government’s Transforming Towns fund.

Neath Port Talbot Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic and Community Regeneration, Cllr Martyn Peters, said: ”I am sure many other local authorities across the UK will be looking at this development to see how it can help town centres recover after Covid and as the shift towards buying online continues.

“The idea is to radically change footfall figures in the town centre, to give a new dynamic by bringing in students and those looking to exercise and relax in what is a really spectacular attraction for Neath.”
