Manchester City Council has declared a ‘carbon emergency’ with a commitment to meet the net zero carbon targets by 2038, 12 years earlier than the national target. 

The intention is to achieve this reduction through the design and implementation of innovative solutions that will reduce reliance on gas heating and also reduces the site energy demands across its estate.


The Council are investing in making Hough End Leisure Centre more energy efficient to reduce carbon emissions by installing new Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP), Battery Storage, Metering and monitoring. Work has already been completed on installing solar PV modules on the roof and installing LED lighting in the pool hall.

All works are due to completed between December 2021 to March 2022. Please be aware that during the works there will be a reduction in car parking available at the centre. As part of and ahead of doing the energy efficiency works, we will be undertaking surveys on the building and its outside areas so please do not
be perturbed or surprised if you see our surveyors or engineers in the vicinity.
