  • Scope

    @leisure Planners has been appointed by the West Coast Council to prepare a Aquatic Strategy. The Aquatic Strategy will:

    • Assess the condition of the existing pools, and review usage, pricing and performance.
    • Analyse the likely demand for aquatic facilities and services in West Coast
    • Present options and a long-term plan for how swimming pools will ‘look’/operate in the future
    • Prepare a 1 year and a 3 year business plan for the operation of the swimming pool/s in a manner that is supported/understood by all stakeholders and within Council’s budget capabilities.

    The project report will be submitted to Council in August 2017.

    In addition, @leisure will be making direct telephone contact with local organisations to seek their views.

    We would like to know:

    • How, when, and what activities you use the existing pools for?
    • What is the best mix of aquatic facilities required in the long term across the Council area that can maximize usage, and provide an acceptable level of service within budget.
    • What are the strengths and weaknesses of each pool; in-terms of the facility and the service it provides for the whole community? For example: people learning to swim, families with children, teenagers and young people, people who swim or go to programs for fitness, older adults and people with a disability, and residents and workers.
    • What would encourage you to visit your local pool, or to visit it more often?
    • Any other suggestions about the development or operation of swimming pools in West Coast Council.
