The development will also deliver: 

  • a new Health Hub with  space for support services and scanning facilities

  • an enhanced indoor sports and leisure centre with community facilities including meeting rooms
  • an attractive civic square with a fountain, shops and cafes
  • 1,762 square metres of commercial space for shops and businesses

The existing outdoor sports facilities and the food growing beds moved to the Feel Good Too Centre which opened in October 2018.

Feel Good Too has two artificial pitches, a 60 metre running track, six beach volleyball courts (four of which are international standard), a fitness trail and a pavilion which includes the discovery Café and a community room.
