Active Queen's Park

Transforming sports and leisure facilities in Queen’s Park

As part of our ongoing plans to improve sports and leisure facilities in Westminster, we are developing proposals to create a new leisure centre on the Moberly site.

Subject to formal planning approval, Moberly and Jubilee Sports Centres will merge to create a new £17million centre at Moberly for Queen’s Park and a smaller community sports facility at Jubilee.

Update - April 2014

Planning committee date confirmed - Moberly Sports Centre

Brent Council’s planning committee will meet on Wednesday 9 April 2014 at 7pm at Conference Hall, Brent Civic Centre, Engineers Way, Wembley, HA9 0FJ.

At this meeting members of the planning committee will determine if they approve or reject the application for planning permission for the redevelopment of Moberly Sports Centre.

For more information please visit the Brent Council website

Westminster City Council's planning committee will meet on Tuesday 22nd April 2014. For more information, visit the planning and licensing applications page.

Planning applications submitted

Following extensive consultation, a planning application has been submitted to Westminster City Council’s Planning department for the redevelopment of the Jubilee site, which will include 12 replacement affordable homes and a community sports facility.

A separate planning application has been submitted to Westminster City Council for the improvements to Queen’s Park Gardens which will include an upgrade of the “free to access” games area and new outdoor gym equipment. 

New facilities for Queen’s Park

The proposals will bring you new sports and leisure facilities across four locations in Queen's Park worth £19 million. This means your local sports and leisure facilities will increase by approximately 40%.

• State-of-the-art community leisure centre at the Moberly site including two swimming pools (25m main pool and a teaching pool), 8 court sports hall, boxing hall, multi-use hall, health suite and gym
• New community sports facility on the Jubilee site including a 3 court sports hall and flexible community  and activity space
• Upgraded outdoor synthetic football pitch at St. Augustine's School
• Upgraded games area and new outdoor gym which will be free to use at Queen’s Park Gardens

New Moberly

At over 7,000 sq metres, the new sports centre will be larger than both Moberly and Jubilee combined offering two new swimming pool and improved facilities:
• A 25m swimming pool plus an additional studio pool with a moveable floor to provide flexible use
• An 8-court sports hall with seating for 500 spectators for wider community and competition uses
• A large health and fitness facility
• Three exercise/dance studios
• A multi-use hall including martial arts
• A community activity room for meetings

• A multi sensory, soft play provision for children’s parties
• A boxing hall facility
• A spa and health suite

Funding

We’re working in partnership with Willmott Dixon Regen Ltd to deliver the new facilities, worth £19 million. We're funding it largely through the development of 155 new homes including high quality replacement affordable homes.
