The news you have all been waiting for...

The Dunstable Centre will re-open its doors on 13 May 2019!

Please take a look at the following statement for more information on the brand new site:

The centre will include a new, modern leisure facility, with a 100-station health and fitness suite, studios, along with a new library, crèche, café, as well as a flexible community space for other public and community services, such as Citizens Advice and day care.

The brand-new library will be a large, bright and airy open-plan space, incorporating state-of-the-art equipment. The space will flow seamlessly within the main foyer and will be zoned for different activities. There will be a fully accessible ground floor library, with a new digital offer including public computers, iPads and a gaming zone, flexible space for activities, a children’s zone, and new facilities for teenagers.

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, Executive Member for Community Services at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “At a time when public services across the country are being squeezed, we have invested in this amazing new building, to give our residents in Dunstable state-of-the-art leisure and library facilities.

“The old leisure centre and library in Dunstable were no longer fit for purpose or cost effective to run. By bringing services together under one roof, the new building will reduce running costs, while providing more flexible services and longer opening hours.

“One of our main priorities is improving the health and wellbeing of our residents. So, we are delighted to confirm that the Dunstable centre will open on 13 May 2019, to help the community be active and access improved library resources."

We can't wait to welcome you all to the centre soon. In the meantime, take a look at some brand new pictures of the site!
