Sandwell LIFTCo has achieve financial close on the Portway Lifestyle Centre project

We are are pleased to announce that the Sandwell LIFT Co, Portway Lifestyle Centre project has achieved financial close. The new £12 million facility will offer sport, leisure, social care and health facilities including a GP surgery and is planned for completion in August 2013.

Once completed the new Portway Lifestyle Centre in Oldbury will be a major asset to the local community and in addition to the new GP facilities, will have a four-court sports hall, hydrotherapy pool for rehabilitation and other therapeutic purposes, a climbing wall, dance studio, fitness suite and full-sized all-weather pitch.

This project is a real example of the vision and commitment of both the Public and Private sectors. Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council and Sandwell Leisure Trust, which will run the centre, have been working closely alongside Sandwell Primary Care Trust and Sandwell LIFT Co to reach financial close. The scheme has also benefitted from significant investment by Sport England to help create an outstanding community facility.
