A New Pool For Palmer Park - The Next Steps

One of the options for the new swimming pool in Palmer Park
Plans have been published revealing the next step in the building of a new swimming pool for east Reading in Palmer Park.

Reading council's Strategic Environment, Planning and Transportation Committee will consider a "development framework" for public consultation at its meeting on 21st November.

The document is intended to:
  • Set out a vision and framework for the future development of a swimming pool and associated spaces within the park;
  • Recommend improvements to the public realm and spaces in the park;
  • Respond to planning policy in relation to the swimming pool development;
  • Identify and resolve constraints and other barriers to development.
Redlands Labour Councillor Tony Jones said "I very much welcome this public consultation as an important and necessary next step towards delivering the new swimming pool in east Reading. I know that many local residents are excited by the prospect of the provision of a new modern, accessible community swimming pool at Palmer Park."
