December 2018

Plans for the new Chiltern Lifestyle Centre have moved a step closer this week as the planning application for the centre has been submitted.

The application is to build a state-of-the-art leisure, sports and community building in King George V Road and replace the existing buildings on the site; Chiltern Pools, Drake Hall, Chiltern Youth Centre and Amersham Library, excluding the Annex and Barn Hall.

If planning permission is granted, the new Chiltern Lifestyle Centre will feature a gym, a spa, an 8-lane 25 metre swimming pool, a diving / teaching pool, a children's splash pad area, a four badminton court sports hall, squash courts, a climbing wall, library, café area and community centre.

As with any planning application, a consultation period is part of the planning process. Residents can view the plans and submit comments via the planning portal for the Planning Committee to consider. The consultation period is open until Thursday 3rd January 2019.

To view the planning application visit Planning and use reference PL/18/4593/RC.

August 2018

Before the new Chiltern Lifestyle Centre proposal is submitted for planning permission, the Council has organised a range of public information events during September and October 2018. 

What can I expect at these public information events?

At these events you will have the opportunity to speak to someone about the project, ask questions and complete a short questionnaire. There will be display boards showing how we have got to this point, the timeline, how the construction phasing would work and what the new Chiltern Lifestyle Centre would look like when completed.  We will also have a ‘fly-through’ so you can see the new centre and its facilities graphically.

Where can I see the images and maps of the proposals?

The display board images can be seen on the Public Information Events area of this website. 

The 'fly-through' is also being finalised and will also be posted on this website when done.

Can't make the events?

If you are unable to attend any of the events mentioned below you can view details of the project on this website and complete the short questionnaire.
