Proposals for Horley's new leisure centre have been submitted.

Plans have been submitted for a new multimillion-pound sports and leisure centre in Horley.

Reigate and Banstead Borough Council submitted plans for the leisure centre which will be on the former Court Lodge Secondary School site.

The proposals include a 25m swimming pool, fitness suite and dance studio.

Energy saving measures such as low-energy lighting and motion sensitive lighting controls have also been included in the proposals.

Remain open

Councillor Adam De Save said: "This is a major step towards the new leisure facilities that Horley residents have been promised and I am pleased that we are now able to present this detailed planning application for consideration.

"We wanted to minimise the new centre's environmental impact and so the proposed new centre has been designed with both this and accessibility in mind."

Residents are able to view and comment on the planning proposals on the council's website and at Reigate's Town Hall.

The new leisure centre will replace the Horley Anderson Centre, which will remain open until the new building is complete.

The Innes Pavilion, which is currently used by a local social club and provides changing facilities for the nearby football pitches, will remain.
