Future arrangements for Connah’s Quay Swimming Pool will be considered by Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet when it meets on Tuesday 15 December. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A Community Asset Transfer Panel made up of Flintshire Local Voluntary Council and Flintshire County Council has recommended that community asset transfer for the facility should proceed and that Cambrian Aquatics, the not for profit community organisation established by Connah’s Quay Swimming Club and Nofio Clwyd should run the Pool. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

For the first year, it is recommended that the County Council will contribute £65,000 to the running costs together with a one off capital funding contribution of £100,000. This financial support will be dependent on work being completed over the coming months by Cambrian Aquatics and Flintshire Council that ensures the Pool can be transferred safely and in a way that works for the foreseeable future ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A key part of this will be engagement and discussion with staff to help finalise the way the swimming pool will operate. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Kevin Jones, Cabinet Member for Leisure said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We think the progress Cambrian Aquatics have made in a relatively short time is substantial and gives us the confidence to make these recommendations to Cabinet. We will be ensuring the work over the coming months provides the Pool with the best chance of success for the future.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
