Glenorchy City Council has released the insights report compiled by the consultants investigating options for the Glenorchy War Memorial Pool.

After a number of community engagement opportunities by consultants MI Global Partners, the report found that the community is in favour of having a pool on the site in the longer term.

Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said Council urged Glenorchy residents and ratepayers to read the report which was now on the council’s website.

“Council promised the community would be engaged as part of its decision-making regarding the future of the pool site, and this report compiled by MI Global Partners summarises that engagement and feedback from the community.

“MI Global Partners will now further assess the community’s preferred options which all include aquatic facilities.  They will then seek further, community input for the pool site before presenting an options report to Council.

“We know people have strong views on the future of the pool site and I am pleased this process has allowed community to have their say.

“All up, almost 950 people completed a survey on their preference for the site, with targeted engagement also undertaken as part of the engagement process.”

The second phase will include interviews, workshops and project updates throughout mid-June-September. Details on these sessions will be released once the dates, times and venues have been finalised.
