PLANS for a long-awaited sports centre in Cambourne have moved a step further after planners gave the project the go-ahead.

At a public meeting in June, Leisure Connection promised to provide a sports centre in Cambourne by September 2008 and with South Cambridgeshire District Council giving the project the nod, things are set to move forward.

It is thought the building work will start in December with the multi-million pound facility opening in late 2008.

The centre will consist of a health floor with more than 100 stations, a dance, drama and aerobatics suite, solarium, sauna, steam room and a beautician's area. There will also be a six-lane swimming pool and multi-purpose sports court.
