Information for members on the closure of the Plymouth Life Centre:

Plymouth Life Centre is to remain closed until April 2021, while urgent works are carried out within the building.

There have been a number of issues requiring remedial works over the last eight years, including ongoing water leaks in certain parts of the building. Further investigations during the recent closure have confirmed that major works are needed to rectify these problems.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will keep you updated throughout the project.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
