David Lloyd centre plans are set for a re-match
THE long wait for a leisure centre for Emersons Green could soon be over.
Plans have gone in to South Gloucestershire Council for a David Lloyd centre, to include covered tennis courts, sports halls, indoor and outdoor pools, and gym and spa facilities.
Proposals for a David Lloyd centre were first mooted early in this millennium. They were initially said to be against long-term plans for the area but were approved on appeal in 2005. Planning approval was again granted in 2010 but David Lloyd requested a time extension “due to other financial commitments in the business”.
The organisation, which has 86 clubs in the UK including two in Bristol, began talks with the council last year about reviving its plans for the site just off the Rosary roundabout.
It has now come up with a scheme it says is better than previous proposals.
