Lakeside works

Whilst building work continues please remember: 

  • Take care! The new Lakeside Centre is still a building site 
  • Watch out for reversing lorries, fork-lift trucks and other vehicles.
  • Routes into and out of the car parks are changing
  • Public toilets are still available

What is being developed:

  • The two state-of-the art buildings, that will act as a base for users of Lakeside Country Park, are being redeveloped by Eastleigh Borough Council. 
  • The main building will include improved changing rooms and disabled facilities, a multi-purpose training and conference suite that can accommodate up to 60 people, rentable office space and a permanent home for some of the council's Countryside staff.   
  • The supporting building will include eight storage rooms of varying sizes for hire, a vehicle store, public toilets and a workshop.
  • The development has been designed by RH Partnership Architects (RHP) and the main contractor is the Construction Partnership, who are based in Hamble-le-Rice.
  • The buildings are designed to be extremely energy- and water-efficient, using ground-source heat, solar power and featuring a green roof.   You may notice that the traditional craft of dry-stone walling is being used in the build.
  • Temporary accommodation is in place to ensure that groups can still use the lakes – and public toilets are also available.
  • The new Lakeside Centre is due to open to user-groups from the end of Summer 2016.
