Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre Outdoor Pool Redevelopment
The project includes a complete replacement of the current outdoor diving and eight-lane pools with one state-of-the-art L-shaped heated 50m pool. The new pool will be made up of two pool spaces incorporating an extended 10 lane 50m space and a 4 lane 25m pool space including associated plant room upgrades, all surrounded by a new concourse and landscaping and new LED lighting towers.
The current facility has coped with a 55 per cent increase in the population since being built in 1967, and a further 53.4 per cent increase in population is forecast for the catchment area by 2071.
Total outdoor aquatic space will increase by 25-30 per cent enabling the facility to provide recreational opportunities for this growing population.
How long will the project take?
The project will commence on Monday 11 July 2022 and is planned to be completed and open in 2024.
