The plans, which have been revised following Cardiff Rugby's recent decision to withdraw from the centre, include a 25-metre swimming pool.

The pool will feature an adaptable, moving floor which allows the depth of the water to be varied. This feature enables the pool to be used for a wide range of swimming and ‘splash' activities, as well as reducing the energy needed to heat the water. The current slide will also be retained.

The existing sports hall and outdoor mini 3G pitch will be retained and the studio and gym facilities re-opened. The changing rooms will also benefit from a full refurbishment.

The energy performance of the centre will be upgraded through roof mounted solar panels and an air source heat pump to heat the pool. Together these investments will help to reduce the operational cost of running the centre and improve the carbon performance of the building.

A council spokesperson, said: "These revised plans offer an affordable pathway towards doing what the Council have always remained committed to doing - getting Pentwyn Leisure Centre, including a swimming pool re-opened."

Following the drop-in sessions, members of the local community with any questions or requiring further information about the plans, can
