What would you like to do at Holywell Mead? The Council wants to see the complex reopened as a leisure facility. The challenge is to make the mix of leisure activities exciting enough to make this a well used service that operates at no cost to you, the Council taxpayer, with, hopefully, all year round programmes to make Holywell Mead a vibrant attraction for all.
Until this year the Council operated two swimming pools at Holywell Mead, which were costing just under £80,000 to run each year, with additional costs for major repairs to the building and plant. Over a number of years declining numbers of visits were made to the outdoor pool. We would like to reverse this trend by providing a modern and inviting mix of leisure activities that will be popular with residents and visitors. To this end we are inviting local residents to tell us what they would like to do at Holywell Mead so that we can provide a facility that people will actually use.
Consultation starts on Monday 23 November and closes on Friday 22 January 2010.
