Consultation has concluded

Community and stakeholder groups are being invited to provide comment on the recently completed needs assessment and feasibility study for an indoor heated swimming pool in Collie.

The study has identified a number of options, with varying costs and catering for different community needs.

Before making any decision, Council needs to understand which of the options caters for the greatest need, and how much capacity and appetite the community has to bear the ongoing costs of the project.
