Central Bedfordshire Council is planning to build a new leisure centre at Flitwick, near Milton Keynes.
It will be built next to the existing Flitwick leisure centre, which will be shut down once the new facility is completed. The two-storey building will include a swimming pool, a fitness gym and a sports hall.
The council has gone out to tender for a design and build contractor. Estimated contrat value is £9m to £11m.
The aim is to start construction in September, with completion by the end of 2015.
