Updated Statement on Marple Pool: 21st March 2019

The swimming pool at Marple has been temporarily closed since March 2018 due to problems with the pool fabric and filtration system. These meant that it was not safe for the public to continue to use the pool.

Relevant surveys were commissioned and these indicated that the site required investment of £2.7m in the next 2 years to address a series of urgent and priority condition issues. After consultation with local Councillors, a decision was made not to seek the investment required immediately whilst the Council looked into whether it would be more cost effective in the long term to provide a replacement facility.

Since summer 2018, the Council has been carrying out initial feasibility work to develop options for providing a modern, fit for purpose, leisure facility with a pool in Marple. This has been considering:

• Potential sites for a new facility
• The range of facilities which might be incorporated
• The scope for incorporating a range of additional community facilities with the leisure offer
• Funding options for a new facility

Following the initial feasibility work, the project is now progressing with the development of a more detailed scheme. This will present a series of options for incorporating other community facilities alongside replacement leisure facilities, including a pool, in Marple. Once a more detailed scheme has been developed and funding options finalised, engagement will take place with users and local residents.

The Council is committed to working with Life Leisure to maintain gym provision in Marple, pending a decision regarding a replacement swimming and leisure facility. To ensure that the continued gym provision is financially viable, Life Leisure are proposing to amend the opening hours to weekdays only with effect from 1st April 2019.

There will be further regular written updates as the project progresses. The next update will be circulated in May 2019.
