Blayney Shire Council is planning a $2.5 million swimming facility upgrade.

Blayney’s CentrePoint Sport and Leisure Centre is due for an upgrade and Blayney Shire Council has asked for community feedback.

The project will include an interactive children’s water playground, a wet level pool deck and lift in the 25-metre lap pool, disabled access in the middle pool via an access ramp, individual pool temperature controls, unisex accessible toilet facilities and a family change room.

Mayor Scott Ferguson said the pool was built more than 50 years ago and the proposed $2.5 million upgrade would improve swimmer comfort, safety, disabled access and facilities, and reduce operational costs.

“The warmer water in the smaller pool will cater for water aerobics and learn to swim classes, helping to prevent chattering teeth during lessons,” he said.

He encouraged residents to share their ideasand feedback through an online survey available on the council’s website or in hard copy, available from the council’s office or at the centre until February 20.
