Council Leader Philip Sanders thanked members of the public for attending yesterday's meeting. He says the council are yet to reach a decision about the fate of the local swimming pool.
I can assure residents that the council does not underestimate the importance of the facility to the local area. The contract for the running of the pool ends in 2016 and there is a borough council and, indeed, a general election next year. These changes are bound to influence the decisions we make. Currently the borough council subsidises Meadowlands to the tune of around £150,000 per year and generally local authority swimming pools do not cover their costs unless they are in an area of high population.
