Westminster Lodge closure

Commenting on the closure of Westminster Lodge Swimming Pools, Cllr Anthony Rowlands, Lib Dem Leisure Spokesperson said:

‘It is embarrassing and worrying that it has been necessary to close the pool facilities less than a fortnight after they were opened. Residents contacted me immediately with their concerns. Officers tell me that there were safety concerns as the floor areas around the pools had become slippery. Whilst it is clearly correct to close the facility until the problem is solved, this episode raises all sorts of questions about why such an obvious and fundamental matter had not been dealt with before the pool were opened. I shall be presenting a series of questions to next Wednesday’s Full Council meeting for the Conservative administration to answer. Communication with the public has also been poor: the pool was closed at 4.30pm on Thursday. Nothing appeared on the Westminster Lodge website until Friday morning.’
