Swimming pool to finally get upgrade
2:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in News
A RUN-DOWN swimming pool will finally get a huge upgrade after planning permission was given.
Tendring Council’s planning committee approved the plans on Tuesday.
The plans will see new village-style changing rooms, the gym moved to the ground floor and an extension to the building.
Now the scheme has got the green light it is expected the work will be put out to tender.
Between £670,000 and £700,000 was originally earmarked for the improvements.
Committee member Dave McLeod said: “It is long overdue but the pool is still well kept through the manager and staff and I commend them.
“This will bring people into the town to appreciate the new facilities."
