The drop-in sessions will take place at Pentwyn Leisure Centre on Wednesday 19thJuly (10am-7pm) and the Powerhouse Community Centre on Thursday 20thJuly (10am-6pm).

For those unable to attend a drop-in session, an option to provide comments online will be advertised via Cardiff Council's social media feeds from July 19th. The online feedback will remain open until the end of the month.

The recently revealed plans for the centre include:

  • A new 20m x 8m pool, heated by a ground source heat pump.
  • A new cafeteria.
  • A new fitness gym on the ground floor.
  • A new full-sized 3G pitch and mini pitch.
  • A refurbished family-changing facility.
  • A new hall and external space which could be leased to a third party - potentially to create an area for Padel tennis on site.
  • Roof mounted solar panels.

Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Events, Cllr Jennifer Burke, said: "Local leisure facilities mean a lot to the communities they serve, and these drop-in sessions will give the community the chance to comment on our plans to upgrade the facility, ahead of detailed design being completed."

"Despite thecost pressures being felt across the construction industry and rising energy bills, the Council has always been committed to this project.Our initial plans for have had to be reworked in the light of those increases, but importantly we believe we have found a way forward which will see Pentwyn Leisure Centre benefit from a big refurbishment.  The plans ensure that swimming will remain an option at the centre within a more sustainable and affordable operating model."
