The centre will be significantly redeveloped and extended to introduce a new Health and Wellbeing Hub following £1.4 million investment from the Council.
Redevelopment works at West Lindsey Leisure Centre, which is managed by Everyone Active in partnership with West Lindsey District Council, will begin in June and is expected to be complete by September this year.
Visuals of the new facilities have now been unveiled for the local community and showcase what activities and equipment will be introduced as part of the new Health and Wellbeing Hub.
Once works are complete the centre will offer an extensive range of activities to help improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in the local community, regardless of age or ability.
The site will boast health consultation rooms, sauna and steam room, 100-station fitness and toning hub, community rooms and refurbished changing village, as well as a dedicated Active Senior Hub, which will offer dedicated short-mat bowls, easy-line equipment and social area.
Cllr Sheila Bibb, Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee said: “I am really looking forward to seeing work start on this exciting new initiative. Health and wellbeing is something I am very passionate about and I am thrilled to be part of this exciting project.
“Our new arrangement with Everyone Active will help to not only improve the current quality of leisure provision but we will be able to reach even more people across our district.
“It is vital that people do get more active if they are to lead healthier lifestyles and I firmly believe this investment really is going to make it more accessible for people for all ages and abilities.”
The redevelopment works, will be carried out by Callix Leisure and are anticipated to begin on 4 June and the new facilities are expected open to the public in September.
Kerry O’Neill, Contract Manager at Everyone Active, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with West Lindsey District Council to offer additional facilities at West Lindsey Leisure Centre.
“As the UK’s longest established leisure operator, we are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of local residents, and the new facilities will offer a fantastic opportunity to people of all ages and abilities to take part in physical activity in a bid to becoming more active, more often.”
