Hove: King Alfred Leisure Centre forced to close until further notice Brighton News

The leisure centre in Hove, which dates back to the 1930s, currently has no water, meaning toilets, showers and handwashing facilities are out of action.

Brighton and Hove City Council said that the venue will “remain closed for the next few days” due to the ongoing mains water issue.

Freedom Leisure, which operates the centre, said that the venue will be closed both today and tomorrow.

A spokesman for Freedom Leisure said: “We have been experiencing ongoing issues with the water at the King Alfred.

“We currently have no water to the building and therefore we have no toilets, showers or handwashing facilities.

“We have taken the decision to close initially today (December 5) and tomorrow.”

Freedom Leisure said that further updates will be made tomorrow as work to resolve the issue takes place.

It comes as the council considers proposed sites for a new flagship leisure centre to replace the ageing King Alfred.

The centre has been plagued with issues in recent years, with the site forced to close for several weeks at the start of the year after its 40-year-old boilers broke down.

A final decision on a new site for the leisure centre will be made early next year, with construction expected to get underway in 2025.
