St Columb’s swimming pool plans progress
PLANS for an exciting new £8m sports campus in St Columb’s Park - now including an approved 25metre swimming pool - have progressed with the lodgement of an application for the development with the local planning office.
Last year plans were lodged for the new development but the swimming pool element was omitted pending a public consultation.
Now a full application has been lodged for “replacement and relocation of multi-purpose sports leisure facility including community cultural and assembly use and provision of 25metre swimming pool and learner pool with ancillary accommodation.”
The plans - if they come to fruition - will revolutionise sports provision in the Waterside.
The new complex will comprise a mountaineering hall and halls for judo, wrestling and multi-purpose use together with a fitness suite, strength and conditioning suite, changing accommodation, coach education spaces, offices and ancillary accommodation.
Remarkably, there will also be facilities for high performance coaching, drug testing and first aid, video analysis, hydrotherapy, officials and elite changing and physiotherpay.
Outside two floodlit synthetic five-a-side pitches will be provided together with additional car parking.
