As part of an on-going commitment to a healthier, more sustainable environment, Lampton Leisure, in partnership with Hounslow Council, is set to undergo green transformations at  three more of their leisure centres, that will see the future proofing of its services and will support the Council’s mission to deliver greater energy efficiency across the borough.

Thanks to the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS), run by the Department for Business and Industrial Strategy, all the Borough’s leisure centres will be undergoing phased work commencing on 3rd March 2022. 

The building works will include: the installation of Photo voltaic panels that turn daylight into energy, traditional light bulbs replaced with LED lighting and traditional gas-fired boilers will be replaced with modern Air Source Heat Pumps – supplying super-efficient, low-cost energy-saving heating and hot water.

The Lampton Leisure team recognise the importance of our leisure facilities to the local community and will be conducting as much of this upgrade work behind the scenes as possible.  Installation of PV panels will take place while centres are open, however the switch to LED lighting and the installation of Air Source Heat Pumps will require centre closures, to complete the works.

Works have been scheduled to be staggered between leisure centres to minimise impact on the borough and current proposed closure dates are as follows:

• Isleworth Leisure Centre:  03.03.2022 – 13.03.2022

• New Chiswick Pool: 14.03.2022 – 20.03.2022

• Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre: 21.03.2022 – 27.03.2022

Osterley Athletics Track will not require closure during the project works.  

All centre members will be contacted directly about planned closures and to advise that their memberships will be valid across all other Lampton Leisure sites, so they can continue to keep activie while their centre is closed. 

All of these planned upgrades will help reduce carbon emissions as part of the Government pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and reach the target of net zero emissions by 2050. 


Rowland Omamor, Managing Director of Lampton Leisure, said: “We are delighted to be able to upgrade four more of our centres so they can utilise more sustainable green energy in years to come. This grant scheme will provide really valuable upgrades to our facilities and although we know that the closures will cause some disruption to centre users, we hope local residents will understand the value of these works.”

Cllr Samia Chaudhary, Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, added: “We all have a duty to do what is best for our environment as we head towards a future that is potentially threatened if we don’t act now on climate emergency.

“Staggering the temporary closure of our leisure centres to do these vital works will pay huge dividends in saving on our carbon footprint and ensure our leisure centres are fit for the future. It’s an opportunity the council has seized to ‘future-proof’ all leisure facilities in Hounslow with funding through the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS), which is run by the Department for Business and Industrial Strategy”
