Leisure Centre - enough to make your hair curl

Councillor Sue Walker with parents and young people at the Leisure Centre

Local residents are furious at the planning application for a hairdressers in our Leisure Centre. There are already about FIVE hairdressers in and around the town centre plus numerous mobile hairdressers.

Local parents and local young people would like to see more community facilities there. And there are other competing ideas - disabled people want more space at the Leisure Centre too.

Everyone is keen to see the changing rooms and pool area updated. Some parents and children already travel out of the area. They would prefer to see improvements here in Yate so that the Leisure Centre could become a well used focal point of our community once again.

What's next - a card shop? A mobile phone concession?Your local councils have objected to this planning application - we'll let you know what happens.
