What we’re doing

We’ve appointed a design team to develop initial plans to refurbish and improve Kings Hall Leisure Centre. The plans are not yet funded but we are determined to secure and improve the building for the community. 

Why we’re doing it

Kings Hall Leisure Centre has been at Hackney’s heart for generations - with thousands of you learning to swim, going to classes or using the gym in this historic building. 

It’s an important social and historical landmark, reflected in its Grade II listing, but the condition of the building continues to deteriorate, which means that repair costs are rising and your experience of the centre is getting worse. 

Over the past few years, we’ve been developing plans to ensure that the leisure centre continues to meet the needs of the community. We’re determined, despite significant financial challenges facing the Council, to secure this much-loved building for generations to come. 

How we’re doing it

Once we’ve developed initial plans, we’ll engage with leisure centre users and local people on the proposals to make sure they best meet the local community’s needs. 

We’ll keep you informed about these plans, and the opportunities to help inform the changes that take place.
