Plan will lead to reopening of leisure centre

Swindon Borough Council has exchanged contracts with SevenCapital on a new development agreement for the Oasis. This will allow the developer to agree terms with a tenant to run the iconic facility and finalise plans to refurbish and reopen it.

Once the refurbishment works and lease have been completed, the Oasis and North Star sites would be sold to SevenCapital, with the Council having the option to purchase the refurbished Oasis.

As part of the development agreement, safeguards are in place to retain the swimming pool’s popular slides and a wave machine.
