AIM: to install a retractable roof/enclosure over the present local pool at Tea Gardens and installing heaters in the water so it can be used all year round until such time as a modern multipurpose centre including a heated indoor pool is provided.

JUSTIFICATION: there are a number of people whom will benefit from a heated pool in this area for a number of reasons.

* to assist elderly people to remain active without putting unnecessary pressure on their body

* to assist with recovery from operations

* to assist people with chronic pain so they exercise regularly in a low impact way

* suitable venue for the provision of hydrotherapy exercises

* to allow swimming lessons for kids year round instead of summer only

* many lap swimmers can continue to exercise regularly

* to assist local business whom can provide year long programs not just in summer

* Raymond Terrace is the closest heated pool which is a fair distance (40 min) for some people to travel. This pool is also very shallow and often very crowded so not suitable for lap swimmers
