As part of the £7.5m redevelopment of East Riding Leisure Hornsea, which is due to open in Spring, the empty buildings on the promenade front (formerly public toilets and an ice cream shop) were demolished over Christmas and New Year, to open up the landscaped gardens facing the promenade and what will be the entrance to the new cafe and public toilets housed within the building.
The Clock Tower face, which was previously on the buildings on the Hornsea promenade, has been salvaged by the council’s contractors Hobson & Porter and East Riding of Yorkshire Council and handed over to the Hornsea Civic and Historical Society.
The redevelopment includes a complete refurbishment and extension of the leisure centre with new facilities including an extended Tone Zone with 60 stations on the first floor overlooking the promenade; a new extended café area; new changing rooms; and a dedicated Spin and Exercise Studio. The pool area and changing rooms will be fully refurbished.
The redevelopment will also see the town’s library, customer service centre and resource centre relocating to the new facility, and there is also provision to relocate the Children’s Centre there.
With its stunning two-storey extension and high-quality landscaping, the new centre for leisure and learning will provide a major new focal point for the central promenade. Part-funded from the £3.77m Coastal Communities Fund awarded to Hornsea, the project is part of a wider regeneration programme for the sea front. With a dedicated education room, beach-side access to the café and toilets and stunning sea views from the outdoor seating area, the development is designed to attract more visitors to Hornsea, as well as catering for residents.
