Upgrade Proposal for Coonabarabran Pool

The Coonabarabran Memorial Swimming Pool Advisory Committee has prepared a concept plan with proposed upgrades.

Warrumbungle Shire Council Acting Mayor, Cr Aniello Iannuzzi said “the Committee has worked through the competing priorities for the town pool and produced a concept that could be built in stages to match available funding. The Committee is advising Council on needs of swimmers and various user groups in Coonabarabran. Council now invites interested members of the community to comment on the concept plan.”

“The Pool Advisory Committee was established by Council in response to strong representation by members of the community at a Coonabarabran town consultation meeting”, said Cr Iannuzzi.

“The Coonabarabran Memorial pool was constructed in the 1950’s and Council recognises that the facility is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain and is not meeting modern expectations, especially for program activities, and safety standards, said Cr Iannuzzi.

Warrumbungle Shire Council Director Technical Services, Kevin Tighe said“The Pool Advisory Committee established a range of objectives for an upgraded pool facility, which have provided guidance for the concept plan and for lodging funding submissions.  The objectives refer to access for all types of users including recreation, fitness, competition swimming, families and health.”

Mr Tighe outlined the features of the concept plan in the following way, “Features of the proposed pool facility include; conversion of the existing 33 metre pool into a 25 metre 8 lane pool, a 7.8 metre heated program pool, removal of the toddlers pool, construction of a new learn to swim pool, a wet play area and a recreation building.”

Council is now inviting submissions on the project to upgrade the Coonabarabran Memorial Pool.  The concept plan is on display in the foyer of the Administration building and on Council’s website.

Written submissions on the project will be received up until 4.00pm on Friday, 26 April 2019.
