“We are obviously disappointed that the centre will be opening a few weeks later than expected,” said Council Leader Viven Pengelly, “but we have to remember that this has been a major project to create a world-class facility that will cater for the city’s sporting needs for many years.” The councillor added, “You would normally expect projects of this scale to experience far greater setbacks than this. It's fantastic that we now have a planned opening date for the Plymouth Life Centre and people can finally start counting down the days to using this incredible facility."
The centre will house a leisure pool, climbing zone and a 50-metre Olympic-sized swimming pool, as well as many other facilities. “Although it’s taken a while, it’s really only a matter of weeks now until we’ll finally see the results of all the planning and hard work,” said our source from Cascade.
Cllr Pengelly added, “We promised local residents and the sporting community a centre of the highest quality and that is what they will get – we will not be cutting any corners. There are just a few months now until we open the doors and people will be absolutely bowled over when they get to see everything the centre has to offer. I am over the moon.”
David Bibby, managing director of Everyone Active, added: "As the operators we're delighted to be getting the opening confirmation - it is very important for the operations team already working behind the scenes in Plymouth. They can begin recruiting staff, finalising internal fit-out, timetables, as well as keeping all the community informed about future use of the centre and arrangements for opening."
“I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the facilities,”
