Regional Aquatic Site and feasibility study

Media Release - 16 October 2019

Have your say: Georges River Regional Aquatic Facility

Georges River Council is undertaking community consultation regarding plans for future aquatic facilities within the Georges River area.

The consultation aims to ensure any new facility meets the current and future needs of the local and regional population and complies with NSW Government project funding guidelines.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said in August 2019 that Council resolved to move forward as a matter of urgency to determine the type of facilities and services required for a future regional aquatic facility in the Georges River area.

“Aquatic industry experts, Otium Planning Group has been commissioned by Council to explore potential additional aquatic options to meet the changing needs of our diverse community,” said Mayor Greene.

“I’d like to encourage people across Georges River to fill out the relevant survey that best describes how they use aquatic facilities within our local government area.

“Patrons of existing Council aquatic centres are encouraged to complete a user survey for the centre they frequent the most that includes the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre, Sans Souci Leisure Centre and formerly the Kogarah War Memorial Pool.

“The online surveys are a great opportunity for the community to help Council form a thorough understanding of what type of contemporary aquatic facility is possible for the future.

“This has a wide scope, which may include an indoor or outdoor 50 metre pool, 15 metre or 25 metre heated program pools and other uses, for example the inclusion of a cafe, crèche, gymnasium, health and wellbeing centre, water splash play area, community meeting spaces and the necessary car parking,” added Mayor Greene.

Community members can access the survey online via Council’s website and hard copies of the surveys will be available at Council’s aquatic facilities as well as Council’s Customer Service Centres in Hurstville and Kogarah and Council Libraries.

The various online surveys are open until 20 November 2019. Submissions can also be made here.
