Contractors have descended on the site to start work on the main building with the football pitches now complete.
The leader of Gosport Borough Council, Cllr Mark Hook, said: ‘I’m delighted with the work the contractors are doing and they are working really well.They are working to quite a tight timetable and they are working to those dates.There’s been a lot of work going on .
The completed Gosport Leisure Park will have a 25m pool, learner pool, fitness and dance studio and play area. Outside, there will be five-a-side and seven-a-side all-weather football pitches and parking.
And last will be the construction of the town’s first chain hotel, run by Premier Inn.
Cllr Hook said work is due to be completed by the end of the year.
After that, workers will start on construction of the proposed hotel and restaurant.
Cllr Hook added: ‘We thought it was important to do it in that order. We promised the people of Gosport a leisure centre so we have made sure it’s the leisure centre first.
