The local community is being asked to share their views on the new £56m Eastwood Leisure Centre plans.

Following approval for the project from councillors, an updated version of the proposed facility has been unveiled, with two public exhibitions set to offer residents the chance to voice their thoughts.

The exhibitions will be held at the current Eastwood Leisure Centre on May 30 and June 20 from 4pm to 8pm.

Residents can expect a range of display boards illustrating the proposed facility's outline designs.

The design team will also be present to answer any questions.
