Marple Pool Project: Last updated March 2020.

Work on developing options for a potential leisure and community hub for Marple continues to take further steps forward. The pool at the current leisure centre has been closed since March 2018 after problems with the pool fabric and filtration systems meant that it was no longer safe to use. Surveys indicated that the site required investment of £2.7m to address a series of urgent and priority condition issues.

Stockport Council is holding public engagement events to help shape proposals for a new Leisure and Community Hub in Marple.  The aim is to provide a permanent replacement for Marple Pool, which has been closed since March 2018, and would incorporate a range of other fit-for-purpose leisure and community facilities for local residents.
We are aware that the condition of the current gym facility is not good – the roof needs completely replacing.  We have investigated temporary repairs and these are not possible.  Given the work to develop to permanent replacement facility, there are no plans to replace the roof at this stage.  Instead, Life Leisure and the Council have been looking at options for a creating a temporary gym facility in Marple. We will provide more details shortly.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and would encourage members to take part in the public engagement events on Friday 13 March: 10:00-12:00/13:00-15:00 and Wednesday 25 March: 15:00-17:00/18:00-20:00 at Marple Library or online between 13th and 27th March 2020.
