Capital funding for a £13.3m investment in sporting facilities in north Norfolk has been agreed by councillors.
North Norfolk is getting a new £10.6m leisure centre with a swimming pool and a £2.69m community sports hub.
The new leisure centre will be built on the Splash site in Sheringham, which will be demolished.
Meanwhile, the new north Norfolk community sports hub, based at the Cromer Academy and tennis club sites, will include three indoor tennis courts.
Other tennis courts will also be improved at Fakenham, Wells and North Walsham, as per the requirements of the Sport England grant.
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) hopes to sell part of the three-acre Splash site for a hotel development to help pay for the improved leisure centre, which could be open to the public from October 2020.
The funding was agreed at NNDC’s full council meeting on Tuesday, December 19.
