Have your say on MidCoast swimming pools

Published on 13 November 2023


MidCoast Council is heading to seven outdoor swimming pools this summer to hear from swimmers as part of a facilities review.

“We know swimming pools are important community facilities, especially in inland areas,” said Council’s Community Assets Manager, Rhett Pattison. “We want to ensure they remain sustainable and can continue to meet community needs into the future.”

“We have a duty to ensure pools operate according to safety guidelines and they are managed in a financially responsible manner.

“This is why we are introducing some changes to operating hours, entry fees, supervision and management of our pools.”

Although there will be changes to most pools from the 2024-2025 swim season, there will still be opportunities to enjoy a swim at a pool near you.

“We want swimmers to tell us their preferred visiting times for Bulahdelah, Gloucester, Krambach, Nabiac, Stroud, Tea Gardens and Wingham pools.”

You can head to the Have your Say website on the link above to complete a short survey or come along to a pop-up at your pool this summer.

Check the website for the first pop-up dates, up until Christmas.

There will be some more pop-up dates for January soon.

For Krambach pool, Council will consult with the community before undertaking a study to find out whether continued operations are feasible.

“When that study is complete, we will have a further conversation with the Krambach community,” added Mr Pattison.

The consultation will close on Sunday 4 February 2024.
