People in Pontypridd have voted overwhelmingly in favour of saving their paddling pool, as part of the redevelopment of the town's historic lido.
The local referendum asked:
Should Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council keep the existing paddling pool in Ynysangharad Park as part of the Lido redevelopment?
- 2,077 voted 'yes'
- 151 voted 'no'
- 1 spoilt ballot
The poll was held by Pontypridd Town Council. Its result is not binding on the county council, which is leading a £6.2-million project to regenerate and reopen the lido complex.
