Preparations are now underway to start work on the £20m leisure centre next to the current Swan Centre, which has become too costly to maintain, in Tweedmouth.
Tolent will deliver the project in phases to ensure that the existing Swan Centre continues to operate at all times until new facilities open to replace them.
Work will start in January on Phase 1, which includes a new swimming pool and fitness suite. The new centre is expected to be fully complete and open to the public in summer 2022.
Designed by GT3 Architects, the new centre will contain a five-lane, 25m swimming pool, a teaching pool and leisure pool and spa facilities.
There will be a sports hall, indoor bowls, fitness studios, cafe and a sensory room. Outside there will be a 3G full-size playing pitch, play park and trim trail and parking for 175 cars.
