The steering group which has been established to assess the feasibility of taking over the running of Deeside’s only swimming pool look set to submit plans to secure its future. 

Flintshire County Council, Connah’s Quay Town Council, Nofio Clwyd, Swim Wales and Connahs Quay Swimming Club have all been involved in negotiations to secure the future of the towns much valued asset.

The future of the council run pool is under threat as deep cuts to local authority budgets start to take hold.

The individual organisations involved in the talks have given their consent to submit an ‘expression of interest’ to take over the running of the pool under the Community Asset Transfer Scheme.

A business plan aimed at securing the future of the pool and building is now in the process of drawn up.

The groups aims to take over the running of the Pool in 2016 however, they are keen to hear from any other interested organisations who want to see Connah’s Quay keep its swimming pool and want to take an active role in the future running of the pool.

The group has already been instrumental in ensuring the Nofio Clwyd Swimming Scheme can be sustained at Deeside in 2015 with partners taking on roles to supervise and lifeguard while meeting the necessary health and safety requirements.

A workshop for interested groups to discuss initial plans and opportunities will be held in April / May.
