Buckmore Park - local sports centre still closed?

Anybody know what is happening with the Buckmore Park Sports centre in Chatham? It was such a great asset to the local area and it seems a shame to think it's just sitting out in the park unused, especially as Lottery money helped to fund it. How many years has it been standing unused? With the London Olympics on the horizon it seems crazy that such a great sports facility (climbing wall, badmington, gym, pool etc)is idle, probably tied up in legal wrangling etc.

Talking of Olympics, as Beijing has temporarily closed down factories and industries etc to try and solve their pollution problems, it would be interesting to find out what the knock-on efffect of lack of raw materials on manufacture in the UK is. It will take about six months for materials to be shipped back round after the Olympics which means there could be some problems with supply and demand....
