Councillor Clive Harriss, Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure at Buckinghamshire Council said: “Throwing open our doors to residents and visitors on Monday 15 November is going to be a momentous day seeing the state-of-the-art building come to life. The Chilterns Lifestyle Centre will not only provide first-class leisure facilities, but it is also going to be an important community and social venue for people of all ages.

“It has been a challenging construction project through an unprecedented time, but there’s been a huge team effort to get to this point and credit must go to the whole project team and everyone who has been involved in creating this incredible centre.

“The website is now available, so please head to and make a booking, we cannot wait to see you!”
