A new leisure centre for the Vale of White Horse
What's happening now?
Work on the new leisure centre for Wantage and Grove was temporarily paused in October 2018. That situation remains the same at this time, but as soon as there is an update we will let you know.
In October we took the precautionary measure of pausing the project to ensure the council’s long-term finances are not affected by possible changes to the Government’s New Homes Bonus scheme.
The government has announced a one-year financial settlement for local authorities that explains the New Homes Bonus scheme remains the same for the financial year 2019/20, but there will be a spending review in 2019 to set out the government's plans for future funding. As a prudent measure, this project remains paused until the government has announced the conclusions of its spending review.
