Wow! Artists impression of new £60m aquatics centre for Commonwealth Games in 2022





Artists impression showing how the new £60 million Sandwell aquatics centre will look have been unveiled. The state of the art facility with Olympic-sized swimming pool, 25-metre diving pool and capacity for 1,000 spectators will be built in Smethwick on Londonderry Lane. At the end of the Games, it will become a leisure centre. 


Members of the public now have a couple of weeks to comment on the plans for the swimming pool.

Sandwell Council has commented as follows: “We want your views on the design and facility mix. This will support the formal planning application which will be submitted after the consultation period has ended.”

In respect of sustainability, MP Dame Caroline Spelman, who was Environment Secretary during the 2012 Olympics, has said: "I had a responsibility as Environment Secretary for the sustainability of the Olympic Games in 2012, and one of the important questions you have to be able to answer when it comes to the sustainability of a sporting event is will those facilities be sustainable in the future,

Sustainability is a three-pronged concept. It’s economic, environmental and social. So I can see it’s always going to be difficult where you’ve got to break some new ground, but one of the new facilities would come to Sandwell, and it would be a lasting benefit for the community.

But in terms of sustainability, if you look at what is happening, the augmentation of seating capacity is mostly designed because we’ve learnt from the London Olympics that you can build temporary seating to bump up the capacity of your facility, that you can then take back down so that you’re not left with a white elephant.

And you won’t get a white elephant. You will get a great legacy in Sandwell."

Councillor Ian Ward has said that arrangements will need to be made between Sandwell Council and Sport England over the use of green belt land but still feels that 2022 will be the ‘Greenest Games’ to date and he adds "I think for Sandwell to have what I believe will be the best aquatics centre in the country, post games, is going to be a fantastic boost for Sandwell."

Introducing BirminghamWeAre - a Community of Passion

Before we go on to explain more about the collaborative digital space created at 2022withYou.net, let us first tell you what has been achieved by our Community of Passion at BirminghamWeAre.

In 2015, BirminghamWeAre set up an account on twitter to keep the people of Birmingham updated on a new impact focused digital space and portal being built (at that time) by YourPlaceYourSpace for people who are passionate about making a difference and creating a positive impact.

In just a couple of years, the reach of, and interest in, BirminghamWeAre has grown significantly. For example, over 0.7 million impressions is now typically achieved every month by BirminghamWeAre through social media.

BirminghamWeAre.com was established as the first Community of Passion by YourPlaceYourSpace in 2017.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/BirminghamWeAre image.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

BirminghamWeAre.com is a digital 'shout out' space for people to promote their passion and connect with people who share that passion. 

But most importantly BirminghamWeAre is a digital gateway through which passionate people can gain access to a suite of YourPlaceYourSpace engagement tools which they can use to create an impact and make that all important difference for themselves and others.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/communities of passion.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

FreeTimePays is all about positive social value and economic growth and achieving this by supporting the passions of individuals and community.

Already attracting a following of 100,000. YourPlaceYourSpace connected Communities of Passion will continue to grow its reach by 100% every year.

Birmingham is the first City to benefit from YourPlaceYourSpace digital technology. 

2022withYou - a space for shared passion in support of the Commonwealth Games

2022withYou is a Community of Passion dedicated to making the Commonwealth Games a success for Birmingham

BirminghamWeAre has been totally behind Birmingham's bid for the games and the engagement channel has several 'Games' related features already running and provides access to a huge gallery of Birmingham related content (including stunning photography).

However such is the commitment of BirminghamWeAre in helping to make the Games a great success for the City, we have gone one step further. 2022withYou as a domain has been registered to promote passion, support people with passion and give access to the FreeTimePays portal for collaborations and projects in support of a successful Commonwealth Games for Birmingham.

dndimg alt="" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/2022withYou_Launch_Article_Feature_Badge.jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

2022withYou will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect with the Games. Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space.

This space will also provide unlimited access to the latest engagement tools for conducting surveys, polls, online group discussions and conversations

In November 2018 we launch Passion Points, a FreeTimePays form of gamification that recognises and rewards people who get involved, help make a difference and collectively create impact.

We would be delighted to tell you more.
