Demolition begins at Montem Leisure Centre

Demolition begins at Montem Leisure Centre

Demolition has began at Montem Leisure Centre.

The leisure centre, which officially closed in March, is due to be re-developed into housing with a planning application due to be submitted later this year, according to chief executive of Slough Borough Council Josie Wragg.

The site in Montem Lane has been replaced with an £18.5 million facility called The Centre, which includes two swimming pools, a sports hall, three exercise studios and a 115-station gym. 

Josie Wragg tweeted: "Feeling slightly childishly excited to watch the demolition of Montem Leisure Centre from my office window.

"Expected planning application due for much needed housing later in year. #sloughishappening @SloughCouncil"

    if Josie Wragg is watching Montem be demolished from her office window that means at the moment Slough council taxpayers are currently paying for three offices for Slough Council with yes another four extra ones now being planned !! Waste more of our money why not ! If she bothered to look out the windows on the other side of her offices she would notice the endless traffic gridlock on the A4 caused by her councils ridiculous infrastructure plans of 'build at any cost and to hell with the consequences' - of course moving a sports centre away from the centre of town, forcing shops out of the centre of town, reducing parking in the centre of town except the dodgy multi story car park that no-one, not even her own staff want to park in, these all make the centre of Slough traffic situation better don't they ?? Any sensible town centre design would have a central hub where all facilities and parking are with a by pass. Remember when the A4 was a bypass and all Slough shops were on the high street not strewn all over the place ? No, thought not !!

    Housing? What about the infrastructure? The roads around Montem are chaotic most mornings. What plans are in place to improve the traffic?
