PLANS for a long-awaited sports centre in Cambourne are thought to be secure despite the company behind the project being put up for sale.

At a public meeting in June, Leisure Connection promised to provide a sports centre in Cambourne by September 2008.

It has now been revealed that the company, which has its head office at Wyboston Lakes near St Neots, is on the market with a price tag of £50million. Owner Danoptra Holdings has appointed PriceWaterhouseCoopers to handle the sale.

However, a spokesman for the company told The Hunts Post the sale will not affect the plans for Cambourne sports centre.

It is thought building work will go ahead as planned in October.

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.
