THE plans for the new Chesterfield Sports Centre are typical of the fascination for line and style, but are they functional?
This is Chesterfield, not London. It’s supposed to be a sports centre, not some sort of palace, or summer residence for Chesterfield Borough Council meetings.
The quirky names for the facilities are laughable: ‘wet changing village’? ‘Fitness Suite’? It’s not the Ritz!
Please, Chesterfield Borough Council members, forget the expensive plans for your Glass Palace and just upgrade the current Annexe facilities – saving expense and anxiety. Hopefully then this will encourage former users to return to the annexe once again, as it will be a useful area for sporting endeavour.
We in Boythorpe prefer to see green grass, not glittering glass.
