Richmondshire District Council

Funding to be provided for pool repair

Richmond swimming pool has received the go ahead for another £240,000 of District Council investment to cover further essential repairs.

Earlier this month members of the authority’s Corporate Board agreed to help fund work to correct defects in the poolside floor where water seepage has caused structural damage.

It comes on top of a £1.8 million investment to fund a programme of external improvements to ‘future proof’ the facility managed by the Richmondshire Leisure Trust.

The pool is expected to close for around six weeks this summer to allow the work to be undertaken.
