The preferred contractor to take on a major £5m redevelopment of two Wyre leisure centres has been named.

Wyre Council is set to choose which company it will employ to make the improvements to its centres in Poulton and Thornton.

Manchester firm ISG Limited is named in a report to members of Wyre Council’s cabinet as the recommended choice to undertake the work.

The investment will see extreme sports and ten-pin bowling facilities built in Thornton.

A spa, dance studio and new changing rooms, are planned for the Pouton centre, as well as a new community room.

The report, written by Wyre Council’s corporate director of people and places Michael Ryan, says: “As well as improving facilities and responding to customer needs, the aim of the investment is to reduce the overall cost of the service to the council.”

The plans also include new outdoor football pitches and a health and fitness studio in Thornton.
