Forest Hill Pool construction to start in January

Lewisham Council has confirmed that a construction contract has been awarded to Willmott Dixon, a move which should allow work to get underway in January 2011, with a view to opening at the end of 2012, potentially ahead of the Loampit Vale centre.

Facilities in the new building will include a 25-metre pool, a 16.7-metre learner pool, fitness gym, two studios, community room and a café. The new development will include facilities and access for those people with disabilities.
