SALC Decarbonisation Project 2021

SALC Decarbonisation Project 2021

Lancaster City Council are delighted to announce that work on a multi-million pound project that will eliminate onsite CO2 emissions generated by Salt Ayre Leisure Centre has now begun in a bid to become the first such facilities in the UK to be carbon neutral.

This forms part of Lancaster City Council's ambitions to be net zero carbon by 2030. Salt Ayre Leisure Centre has now begun in a bid to become the first such facilities in the UK to be carbon neutral.

The Council has received £6.8million in funding from the government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) to replace existing gas boilers with air source heat pumps, provide external LED lighting and upgrade glazing to reduce energy consumption. A solar farm is also being built on the adjacent disused landfill site at Salt Ayre to generate electricity, which will then be provided to the centre using a direct wire.

Due to funding requirements the project needs to be completed by the end of September 2021, meaning there will be lots of activity over the coming months.
