What is happening?
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is getting set to build a new Water and Leisure Complex in place of the old Marina Centre - a once-in-a-generation investment which will be a major year-round boost to the flagship resort whilst supporting community health and well-being for everyone.
This exciting new destination attraction along the Golden Mile will benefit the seafront and whole borough for up to 40 years, acting as a catalyst for potential further investment and an important community hub for the promotion of both indoor and outdoor activity.
The Borough Council is committed to modernising and enhancing the health and fitness activities and opportunities available to people across the borough, in addition to supporting the vital visitor economy. The total project cost for the new complex is approximately £25.9m.
The old Marina Centre closed to the public on 31 October 2019. Construction is scheduled to start in spring 2020, with the new complex open during summer 2021. In the meantime, to give people a sneak peek inside the exciting new facility, the council has released a video enabling people to take a virtual tour of the new Marina Centre.
