The design work to transform Calne Leisure Centre into Calne Community Campus is now complete and a suitable tender for the main contractor is now being sought.
£3.4 million will be invested in this project to improve the facilities and ensure the long-term sustainability of the centre.
Construction work is due to commence this summer.
The project will deliver a new fitness suite, and the new gym will be twice the size of the existing gym. The wet change facilities will also be entirely reconfigured, delivering a modern village change area.

A sad day for me personally and a great light of the village went out today
After suffering from a heart attack this morning (13th February) Trevor was unable to pull through and left this life behind him.
He had been one of the larger than life characters of the village who I was proud to call my friend since I moved here 18 years ago.
Our thoughts and love go out to Jackie and to their family he has left behind.
As soon as I hear any news I will of course bring it to you as soon as possible.
Look after yourself this winter
As the dark nights draw in across Wiltshire and winter really starts to bite, it's worth thinking about how we can all make sure we're looking after ourselves and staying well over the cold winter months.
The NHS recently launched its annual winter campaign - Help Us Help You - which is here to help make it easier to understand the things you can do.
We all know hospitals and surgeries can be especially busy during the winter months and it can often be tricky to know the best place to go for help, so here's some handy tips to see you though until spring:
- It's not too late to get your flu jab The free flu vaccination is offered to those who are at increased risk from the effects of flu, including people aged 65 and over, pregnant women, those with underlying health conditions and children aged 2-10. If you've not had one yet, it's not too late.
- Call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk online If you're unsure where to go and think you need urgent medical attention, but it's not life-threatening, contacting NHS 111 can help you make sure you reach the most suitable NHS service for your needs.
- Ask a pharmacist for advice before minor ailments or winter illnesses get worse Community pharmacists are qualified healthcare professional who can offer clinical advice and over the counter medicines to safely manage things like coughs, colds and sore throats. It's quick and convenient to see a pharmacist - you don't need to book an appointment and can often be seen in a private consultation room.
- See your GP in the evening or weekend if you can't see them during the day If you need to see a GP but find it hard to find the time during routine hours, appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professionals are often available in the evenings and at weekends through many local practices or other local NHS services.
