Public exhibition on Forest Hill Pools completed 9 April 2010

Posted by Philip in Forest Hill Pools.

A public exhibition of the Forest Hill Pools designs was held around Forest Hill (at the Station, Library and in Sainsbury’s) in late March. Apparently the designs were largely popular amongst visitors and suggestions were made that the architects are currently looking at. They hope to complete the design very soon so the council will be able to apply for planning permission in the next few weeks.

The pools being a big issue in 2005 when I was first elected (when the council were suggesting that Forest Hill didn’t need a pool), I’m obviously really pleased that progress is being made. It’s just a shame that Labour-run Lewisham has dithered for so long (one pool, two pools, moving them to the industrial estate on Willow Way etc) that we’ve all been without a pool for so long and the cost to the taxpayer (you and me) is much more than it could have been. There’s still a lot to do before the pools are finished in 2012, but there are grounds for optimism.
