Council is developing a strategy for the future development of facilities at Sawtell and Woolgoolga Swimming Pools and is asking the community for thoughts and ideas through an online survey.
“Sawtell and Woolgoolga Pools are both nearly 40 years old and, while they provide adequate community facilities, each complex needs significant improvements,” said Andrew Beswick, Council’s Director Business Services.
“Council is also aware that pool-based recreational activities have evolved over time so we would like to establish a strategy to ensure that the upgraded facilities at both pools will provide for current and future community and visitor needs.”
Council has engaged SGL Consulting Group to prepare a strategy which will consider the condition and future life of current equipment, the scope for improving running costs through better plant efficiencies and the options for providing new facilities that locals and visitors want and expect.
“Overall, Council is focused on providing attractive and popular pools for all its users,” added Mr Beswick.
A detailed survey that asks the community for input and ideas on the future of both pools is now open at https://haveyoursay.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au/Pool_Strategy_Sawtell_Woolgoolga
The survey is open until May 7 2018.
