Olympic Swimming Pool for new Dover sports centre

This petition had 710 supporters

Dover District Council are in discussions, negotiations and planning for a new sports centre which means an much needed new swimming pool - YAY!

Currently the 25m Dover pool is well used, however it is old, run down and not the most pleasant place to swim. This said even the pool is often block booked by various clubs, resulting in no public swim - having a 50m pool would mean public could still make use of the pool when clubs are training.

Deal Tri is one of the largest clubs in the UK without a lap pool in their home town, I'm sure they would make good use of a large pool.

Dover Life Guards would be able to host galas, and the ASA would be able to use the 50m pool for regional events rather than traveling to Gillingham which isn't Olympic sized.

This petition is not to be used as a stick to beat DDC with our demands, it's a simple show of hands as to what we would like of our new sports centre.
