At its meeting of 28 September 2016, our cabinet confirmed that the council's preferred location for swimming provision in Shrewsbury was the Shrewsbury Sports Village. However, in view of the public interest in the retention of a town centre location, cabinet also made clear that any interested party would be given the opportunity to develop alternative business case proposals to retain swimming provision at the Quarry or other town centre location.
Following a subsequent change in council administration in June 2017, a review of the different location options for the future provision of swimming in the town centre of Shrewsbury will be carried out. Pending the outcomes of this review, the process for the submission of business cases has been stopped.
A final recommendation on the preferred location for future swimming provision in Shrewsbury will be subject to a further cabinet report in due course.
