Ths year we began the transformation of East Riding Leisure Hornsea with the complete refurbishment and extension of the leisure centre.
This includes an extended Tone Zone with 60 stations on the first floor overlooking the promenade; a new extended café area; new changing rooms; two new squash courts; and a dedicated Spin and Exercise Studio. The pool area and changing rooms will be extensively refurbished.
The redevelopment will also see the town’s library, customer service centre and resource centre relocating to the new facility, as well as the Children’s Centre.
The design incorporates a stunning two-storey extension and high-quality landscaping, the new centre for leisure and learning will provide a major new focal point for the central promenade.
Hobson & Porter Managing Director, Richard Hunter, said: “The development will provide a huge boost to Hornsea and promises to bring numerous benefits to the residents and communities in the town and surrounding area.
“Our experiences in completing similar leisure projects such as the refurbishment and extension of East Riding Leisure Haltemprice will be key to the delivery of this landmark scheme, and we’re looking forward to working with the council again and playing our part in this exciting regeneration of Hornsea.”
Ben Samuel, trainee site manager, said: “I grew up in Hornsea so it’s great to be working on this project on a leisure asset I used frequently as a child. Also working with Kev, one of our most experienced project managers means every day is a school day here.”
Councillor Symon Fraser, from East Riding Council, said: “The redeveloped East Riding Leisure Hornsea represents the largest single investment this council has ever made in the town.
“We are committed to providing the people of Hornsea and visitors to the resort with the best possible facilities and to ensure they have continued access to the services they value for many years to come.
“The creation of similar multi-service centres has proved to be successful in other parts of the East Riding, providing the public with improved services while reducing running costs for the council by having a number of services under one roof. It has also led to increased usage and substantially improved the offer to our residents.”
