Fusion Lifestyle has been given the green light for the £5 million renovation of the City Pool and Turkish Baths in Newcastle.
The City Council approved plans to refurbish the building, which closed three years ago and has been standing empty since. The regeneration project will bring the historic Grade II listed building back into use and create a unique health and wellbeing destination for people visiting, living and working in the city.
Peter Kay, Chief Executive of Fusion Lifestyle, said: “We are proud to be working on the regeneration of the City Pool and Turkish Baths and the signing of the lease is another step towards seeing our ambitious plans come to fruition.”
Fusion Lifestyle’s successful proposal was chosen as the best by Newcastle City Council from five bids received. It is expected the regeneration work will begin later this year with the completed project opening to the public in spring 2018
