Measham Leisure Centre, Swadlincote (Light case study)


The Measham Leisure centre project demonstrates how community landscapes can be enhanced by retrofitting SuDS that offer significant amenity and biodiversity benefits, while reducing local flood risk, and improving water quality. This was a demonstration SuDS project, and is an example of the Catchment Based Approach, initiated and project managed by Trent Rivers Trust, to manage water quality in the Mease Catchment.

The frontage to the Leisure Centre was previously a wide expanse of concrete block paving, punctuated only by two small circular tree pits (approximately 1m diameter). One of the original trees had died (and been removed), and the second was in poor health, likely owing to the minimal soil volumes.
