Location

The new pools will be built on the Scarborough St (South) recreation reserve located behind Innovative Waste. The decision to build the new pool on Scarborough Street behind Innovative Waste was made after community consultation as part of the Annual Plan 2019/2020. 

The Council is separately developing plans to close and cap the landfill and redesign the neighbouring Innovative Waste resource recovery centre and landfil. The capping and redesign are expected to greatly reduce the visibility, noise and odour. Read more about this
