An upgrade of the Tatura swimming pool is high on the agenda for the Tatura Community Plan Committee.
Recent meetings have visited the Tatura pool, Victory Hall and the next meeting is scheduled for the Tatura Museum.
At the Tatura pool, the former chair of the Tatura Leisure Centre proposal, Jill Clapperton, provided the committee with the background and vision of a proposal completed in 2004 to upgrade the pool and facilities.
Tatura Community Plan Committee spokesperson Marisa O’Halloran said upgrading the Tatura pool had always featured highly on the list of issues for the Tatura Community Plan Action Plan, because a well maintained and functional pool provides a great venue for exercise and learning opportunities, a safe social setting and a welcome area to visit during summer.
Ms O’Halloran said the Tatura Community Plan Committee was looking for people to get on board to help progress ideas and actions at the pool, and to form a new advocacy group to meet with council.
‘‘The pool is a great community asset, and the committee believes the facilities could be improved to increase opening hours, provide more leisure opportunities for pool visitors, increase opportunities for learn-to-swim programs and include more opportunities for play areas and equipment for youngsters,’’ she said.
‘‘This would reduce the need for Tatura and district residents to travel to Shepparton for access to high quality pool facilities and swimming lessons.’’
Ms O’Halloran said committee members were also recently shown around Victory Hall and given a history of the buildings.
‘‘They viewed the maintenance works required and gained an understanding of the potential uses of these buildings,’’ she said.
‘‘The Community Plan Committee has been advocating for works at the hall and has been regularly updated on efforts towards its restoration.’’
