Public consultation outcome
A five month public consultation on seven different pool options and locations took place in 2015. Combined, the Quarry options represent 68.06% of the most preferred responses, with respondents citing central location, accessibility, economic impact on the town centre and convenience as the main reasons for the Quarry preference. Learn-to-swim provision was seen as the most important element of a swimming facility, with proximity to public transport links and a timetable that caters for all also seen as important.
