Arun Leisure Centre –
Arun Leisure Centre (formerly Inspire Felpham Leisure Centre) aims to increase engagement in physical activity in Sussex after a recent £1million refurbishment. The project is part of a bid by Arun District Council and West Sussex County Council to improve leisure provision by using the buildings space more efficiently.
The project is part of a bid by Arun District Council and West Sussex County Council to improve leisure provision by using the buildings space more efficiently. The leisure centre is managed on behalf of Arun District Council by Inspire Leisure not-for-profit trust. The strategy enables the leisure centre to offer a wider variety of classes and to improve revenue by making use of underutilised space and tailoring the existing areas towards high demand activities.
Clarkson Alliance was chosen for the design, project and cost management of the project because of our experience in the leisure sector. Our approach to developing a business case tailored to the objectives of Leisure Trusts and Local Authorities helps organisations to recognise opportunities and maximise the value of existing areas backed by research into the needs of those in the local area.
The revised layout incorporates a new mezzanine floor which houses an extended studio; extension and refurbishment of the gym area – more than doubling the existing size; a new spin studio and new changing rooms.
Clarkson Alliance provided design, project management and cost management services for refurbishment and enlargement of gym, adding and extending studios, changing rooms and corridors.

We are delighted with how the project has gone. It is an important part of our remit to offer the community in Arun good quality leisure provision to encourage residents to be active and healthy which this project has done. We felt that Clarkson Alliance was in control the whole time – with the programme and the budget as well as managing the team. We’ve been really pleased with how the whole team has worked together.Paul Broggi
