At the Rockdale Council meeting on Wed 7 Dec, a unanimous decision was made to go ahead with the next phase of the pool re-development: commuity engagement. Consultation feedback is called for, starting Dec 13 and running to early March 2012.
As Mark Hanna, spokesperson for the pool supporters' said:
"After three solid years of intense lobbying, petitions and meeting attendance, we finally have something concrete to comment on. I cannot stress enough how important it is to flood council with favourable feedback on the proposed concept plans and facility mix."
All the information is available at the Rockdale Council website:
Alternatively, they have set up a special email address for feedback as well. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The St George and Sutherland Shire Leader carries a front page story on the proposed upgrade. People can also go onto their site and make comments. Here is the link: http://www.theleader.com.au/news/local/news/general/new-life-for-bexley-pool/2390133.aspx
This is our chance to get this project over the line and secure the long term future of Bexley Pool. Please help by providing positive feedback. Without this upgrade, the future of Bexley Pool remains highly uncertain.
