With the successful village green application having delayed the prospect of a new swimming pool in New Addington, the Council has announced that it will be spending £300,000 on urgent works to keep the existing pool in an acceptable condition. The Council hopes to get a contractor on site in late February. The works are expected to take a little over a couple of months to complete, allowing the pool to re-open in early May.
I and my fellow New Addington action team members Tony Pearson and Robert Hughes have been lobbying for this for some time. The changing rooms in particular are in need of urgent investment. I am delighted that the Council has listened.
