  • Parking was the most popular theme from the open-ended comments. Respondents suggested that the centre needs its own off-road car park.
  • It’s important to respondents that the new centre is inclusive and accessible for:
    • people of all ages,
    • those with disabilities, and
    • people on a variety of incomes.
  • Respondents want a good quality swimming pool, as well as community spaces. They also hope that some of the existing facilities (like the railway and outdoor courts) will stay.
  • Other suggestions included:
    • encourage active travel,
    • good management,
    • flexible opening hours,
    • a good café, and
    • the hub has to be safe and well-lit.
  • A small number of respondents expressed their opposition to the proposal, stating it is the wrong location. Others want constant consultation and for it to be built quickly.
