Huddersfield’s new leisure centre has claimed its first award after scooping a prize for building excellence.


The centre – which opened in May – won the community category at the West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards.


Cllr Graham turner, Cabinet Member for Resources at Kirklees Council, said the success was recognition for the innovative build.


He added: “Since opening, the centre has seen an increase of 1065 Kirklees Active Leisure memberships and is extremely busy with 75,000 visits in the first month. Hopefully this will be the first award of many.”


The Local Authority Building Control Awards recognise the importance of building control in creating high quality, sustainable buildings.


Winning the West Yorkshire regional prize means that the Huddersfield Leisure Centre can be entered into the national LABC awards in London in autumn
