Bangalow pool hits hurdle

Peta Heeson is sure of one thing. No matter what, Bangalow will get its long-awaited swimming pool.
“It’s going to go ahead,” said Peta, who is president of the Bangalow Pool Trust.
For 12 years, the Bangalow community has been battling to get its own pool and has nearly $250,000 in the bank to put towards the cost of the project.
It also has in-kind pledges for the pool worth about $200,000.
Peta Heeson said the business plan put forward to the council showed a four-lane pool with a beach-type entrance.
But she said the independent assessment was for a tiled, 10-lane pool.
The council has now called for a report from the pool trust and Bangalow Pool Working Group on a modified, or staged project along with a report from a quantity surveyor.
The future of the pool may become a bit clearer after the trust and working group meet next Wednesday.
