Many Bath locals will remember swimming in the open air Cleveland Pools with great affection. The exciting plans for the historic pools’ renovation and future use are on display for the first time this week.
As part of a public consultation exercise the concept designs have been displayed at a stand in Southgate, Bath, on Monday and Tuesday this week, and then outside GAP in Milsom Street all day on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 April 2016.
Members of the Trust and its design team will be available to explain the thinking behind the development of the present concept design and to answer any questions.
An online survey will be available for the start of the consultation from Monday 25th April on the Trust’s website www.clevelandpools.org.uk which will include an explanation of the development of the design and a short survey form for comment.
Your involvement in the Public Consultation is important for two reasons:
- To ensure that we provide the best project possible for the people of Bath;
- To demonstrate the community’s involvement and support in developing our plans to the HLF, which will encourage them to provide a grant for the restoration work.
Project Programme: The Trust will be submitting a second stage funding application to the HLF this Autumn seeking grant funding of £3.7m. The goal is to have the pool open for swimming early in 2018.
Fundraising: the Trust needs to raise £600,000 partnership funding before January next year and has recently set up an appeal board to help reach this target. For more information about the project please look at the website or contact the Trust at firstname.lastname@example.org.
