Tamworth Regional Council has brought forward plans for an aquatic centre in response to “strong and robust” lobbying by a local group. The planning and design was originally set to be completed by December 2020, but the council has now promised to have the project ‘shovel ready’ by December 2018.

The council reassessed its priorities after being lobbied by the Tamworth Aquatic Group, which represents all pool user groups in the city.

“It certainly is some comfort to me that we have firmed up a timeline for how the project might be progressed,” Tamworth Mayor Col Murray told the Northern Daily Leader.

Early estimates suggest the aquatic centre could cost $30 million. To partially fund the new centre, the council will need to sell Tamworth’s two public pools, as well as seeking government funding for the project.

The proposed facility will be located within the Northern Inland Centre of Sporting Excellence; construction on this centre is expected to begin in September 2017.
