Motion to April
City Council Meeting
For the City Council Sports Policy to commit to include single stand
alone swimming pools as an important part of its strategic policy
towards the development of sport and leisure in the city.
For this strategic policy to acknowledge the important role that
the council's owned and managed stand alone swimming pools play
in the teaching, education and coaching of swimming and life saving
in particular for young people.
For the City Council's Sports Policy to further commit as part of
its strategic policy to work with the user groups of the existing
stand alone swimming pools in improving the efficiency of the management
of these pools.
This commitment to stand alone pools will remain as strategic policy
until such time as all existing council owned and managed stand
alone swimming pools are replaced by integrated regional sports
and leisure centres.
With this renewed strategic policy for the continuance of stand
alone swimming pools, the Culture, Recreation and Amenity department
will actively seek financial and grant aid from all funding agencies
for assistance in the running and maintenence of the current pools.
