Update on Marple Swimming Pool -
At the Area Committee last night, I read out the following statement -
"The Council is continuing the work on the feasibility of providing new leisure and community facilities in Marple following temporary closure of the pool earlier this year.
This work is looking at how we can develop new multi-purpose facilities which will meet the current and future needs of the constituents of Marple area. It includes assessing the scale of need, the demand in the local area, the costs and the viability of any new provision, based on modern facilities.
We are also keen to build a strong partnership with Sport England and Swim England to maximise any funding opportunities.
We recognise and welcome the active local interest in this project and expect to share the first stage of this feasibility work once it is completed later this Autumn. At that stage we will aim to speak to relevant interest groups and other stakeholders during November to guide us towards a further update by the end of the year."
I will continue my campaign and working with Council Officers to get a new leisure facility for Marple.
