Building foundations for new Chesterfield Sports Centre
Work is currently being carried out by construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall on erecting the steel structure of the new centre on the site of Queen’s Park Annexe. A clause in the contract specifies they should use local labour and materials where possible.
The new centre is funded by £6.725 million from Chesterfield Borough Council, £2.5 million from Chesterfield College, as part of a dual use agreement, £2 million from Sport England’s Strategic Facilities Fund and £25,000 from Squash England.
The current Queens Park Sports Centre will remain open until the new centre opens in early 2016.
