Statement on Marple Pool

The Council is continuing the work on the feasibility of providing new leisure and community facilities in Marple following the temporary closure of the pool earlier this year.

This work is looking at how we can develop new multi-purpose facilities which will meet the current and future needs of the residents of Marple. It includes assessing the scale of need, the demand in the local area, the costs and the viability of any new provision, based on modern facilities.

We are also keen to build a strong partnership with Sport England and Swim England to maximise any funding opportunities.

We recognise and welcome the active local interest in this project and expect to share the first stage of this feasibility work once it is complete later this Autumn. At that stage we will aim to speak to relevant interest groups and other stakeholders during November to guide us towards a further update by the end of the year.

The Council has set up an e-mail address to answer any queries users and local residents may have about the facility. The address is marplepoolproject@stockport.gov.uk
