190726: Community Survey – Denise Spencer Pool – Roma – closes Friday 26th July


The Denise Spencer Swimming Pool was constructed in the 1960’s and is reaching
the end of its “useful asset life”.
SGL has been commissioned to prepare a business plan and feasibility study to
determine how to best deliver an aquatic centre facility in Roma into the future.
Council is looking at all options to ensure the continued availability of a pool complex
that meets the current and future needs of the Roma community.
The study will investigate options including major refurbishment of the existing pool,
constructing a new pool at the current pool site and constructing a new pool at
another site.
Your views and opinions are now being sought. It would be appreciated if you could
take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire.
