Beechworth Swimming Pool Feasibility Study

  • The Project

    Indigo Shire Council have engaged @leisure Planners to undertake a feasibility study and an assessment of options for the Beechworth swimming pool. The study will recommend a preferred site, and identify likely costs of options before commencing detailed design and the costing of ongoing operations.

    The project will:

    • Consult with user groups and the local community 
    • Identify the nature of facilities and amenities to be included to best suit the market
    • Prepare a concept plan and preliminary cost estimates for construction
    • Propose a project schedule for construction
    • Prepare a 10-year operational budget and make recommendations about management.

    Have your say

    We would like to know:

    • Does Beechworth need a year-round swimming pool?
    • What is the preferred location if the Beechworth pool was to be redeveloped?
    • What components are essential for a redeveloped swimming pool in Beechworth?
    • What other public aquatic facilities do you currently use and why?
