Derbyshire’s £12m State-of-the-art centre opens
Arc Leisure Matlock, the biggest ever development by Derbyshire Dales District Council, opened at noon on Wednesday 24 August.

Queues formed outside the entrance to the £12m centre – and minutes after the doors opened the superb new pool hall and fitness suite were full of happy customers.

Earlier, in the day half a dozen lucky winners of a competition took the historic first plunge into the eight-lane main pool which features a moveable floor that meets regional competition standards.

Designed by architects Dyer and built by local construction company Morgan Sindall, the Arc Leisure Matlock facility replaces the Matlock Lido which had been used since 1938 but closed on 14 August.

The exciting scheme on a reclaimed site between Matlock and Darley Dale is already an award winner after Arc was named the Most Sustainable Remediation Project at the Brownfield Briefing Remediation Innovation Awards last October.

The fabulous development incorporates significant renewable energy features to minimise the new building’s carbon footprint. These include solar panels, rainwater recovery and Combined Heating and Power (CHP).

Other facilities at the centre include a learner pool, a wet play area, a 50-satation gym, regional-standard badminton courts; spaces for indoor hockey, basketball, five-a-side football and gymnastics; and revamped outdoor football pitches.

DDDC funded the scheme with support also provided by Sport England, the Amateur Swimming Association, East Midlands Development Agency and Matlock and Area Sports and Recreation.
