In February of this year Cllr. Paul Bell alerted his fellow councillors and Council officials to the deteriorating condition of changing room and shower facilities at the Aura leisure centre at Marley’s Lane.

His motion to the monthly meeting: “That this Council honour in full its contractual obligations to fund the maintenance and now urgently required refurbishment of the Aura Leisure Centre located on Marley's Lane, Drogheda” was unanimously adopted

Most of the Councillors present said that they too had received complaints from members of the public concerning the condition and cleanliness of the changing rooms and showers at the centre but there was some confusion as to who was responsible for upkeep and maintenance at the facility.

This week Louth County Council confirmed to Cllr. Bell that the Centre is to get a major refurbishment later in the year and into 2019.

“Council has confirmed that a tender was issued seeking an “Architectural Design Team” to specify and oversee the total restoration of the popular facility” Cllr. Bell told Drogheda Life.

Bell also confirmed that the refurbishment will not only centre on the changing rooms but will also include an upgrade of facilities for people with disabilities.

“While I am very disappointed that he facility was allowed to deteriorate to a condition which forced many members of the public not to renew their membership. I am satisfied that the much used leisure centre will be refurbished to the standard as originally designed” he said.
