Outdoor Pitch at the Flash Leisure Centre, Welshpool to reopen
29 September 2020
Powys County Council and Freedom Leisure are pleased to announce that the outdoor sports pitch at Welshpool's Flash Leisure centre will re-open later this year.
Following extensive investigative drainage works and the unfortunate delay in progress due to COVID-19, the replacement of the outdoor playing surface at the Flash Leisure Centre Welshpool will go ahead along with a revised pitch lighting design.
A successful tendering process has concluded, and specialist contractor Cleveland Land Services have been appointed and will be meeting the council to plan operations immediately. It is anticipated that works will be completed by early December and the pitch will then reopen.
The work will be subject to any further changes to COVID restrictions or regulations and completion dates could be affected.
Cabinet Member for Young People and Culture, Councillor Rachel Powell said: "This project demonstrates Powys' continued commitment in providing inclusive sport and leisure facilities for communities in Powys. We would like to thank customers and users of the leisure centre in Welshpool for their patience and continued support and understanding while these works have been progressing. Appointing a contractor for the project is a major step forward and we look forward to having the facility reopen."
