The construction of a new £9.2m health hub in Warsop, set to offer amenities such as a gym and swimming pool, is progressing as planned.

Recently the project saw the arrival of 420 beams and columns from British Steel and Tata Steel, marking the beginning of the Warsop health hub’s physical structure taking form.

The leisure centre will house various facilities, including a hall, an IT area, and a communal space.

The swimming pool, which has already been excavated and lined, will measure 15 by eight meters and hold approximately 126 cubic meters of water.

Planning permission was first received in March, while construction got underway in June.

Mansfield District Council has now said it is on track to be opened early next year.

Councillor Andy Burgin said: “The steels show the scope and scale of the building, which will be of huge benefit to the Warsop community and beyond. This project will bring leisure, well-being, and community together all under one roof.

“We’re pleased that the hub continues to be built at pace, and it is just a testament to everybody involved in the project’s dedication and commitment to the scheme.” The hub was one of six projects funded from the £12.3 million awarded to Mansfield District Council in the 2021 Towns Fund.”
