A NEW running track replacing the current one at Carn Brea Leisure Centre will be built at Redruth School before the old one is decommissioned, Cornwall Council’s Cabinet agreed today.
Plans to revamp the Pool-based leisure centre have taken a step forward after cabinet agreed to sale off the land containing the running track.
But a slight amendment from cllr Bert Biscoe requested a new running track be in place before work starts to revamp Carn Brea Leisure Centre and the current running track is shut down.
The new track is to be sited at Redruth School, the council’s preferred option.
It is understood supermarket giant Asda could make a move for the running track land. A spokesperson would not comment on the situation but had previously said they were considering it.
Speaking at the cabinet meeting councillor Bert Biscoe said it was important to keep the running track in the Camborne Redruth area.
He added: “The deal should be signed and sealed for the new running track and it should be built before construction vehicles move on to the current site.”
