Sped up programme sees changes at Selwyn Aquatic Centre

Wednesday, October 14, 2020   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: recreation

Selwyn District Council media release: 13th October 2020

We’re speeding up work at Selwyn Aquatic Centre to get the new extension finished as soon as possible and to catch up after the COVID disruption.

To do this, we will be bringing forward our work in the entrance and changing room areas, which will require some changes to how you use the centre.

A new temporary entrance will be in place at the front of the main pool hall from Monday 19th October, and temporary changing rooms will be in place on the north side of the building.

The customer counter will be at the portacom in front of the temporary entrance and you will then need to cross the pool hall to the new changing rooms.

The accelerated work means we’re on track to have both the new pool and new foyer, community rooms, and changing rooms open next April and the final works completed by September 2021.

Although work was delayed by the Level 4 lockdown period, we were able to catch up some time during Level 3, which means the pools will not have to close at all as originally planned. This new work programme allows us to catch up time lost during lockdown while keeping a pool available for swimming.

The expansion will see a new 10-lane, 25-metre pool built, greatly increasing the existing capacity, with more recreational lane swimming and learn to swim space and allow more options for water sports and spectator space. The full expansion will also add recreation and community spaces.
