Meeting to update residents on Kenilworth's new swimming pool

Leamington Editorial 18th Sep, 2023   0

THE PUBLIC are being invited to hear an update on the new swimming pool in Kenilworth.

The project has been put on hold since the discovery of extensive unrecorded medieval remains on the site at Abbey Fields.

But now Kenilworth Town Council and Warwick District Council are holding a meeting on Wednesday September 27 to give residents an update on the issues that will need to be addressed to move the project forward.

At the event representatives from WDC’s project team will give an overview of the findings and the necessity to draw up detailed revised plans to protect the medieval remains found.

Councillors and officers will share the decisions that elected members will now need to make regarding the progress of this swimming pool. This will be followed by the opportunity for the public to ask questions of the panel.

WDC Leader Coun Ian Davison said: “The aim of this event is to bring the public fully up to date with the Abbey Fields Swimming Pool project. The significant, historic medieval remains necessitate substantial additional costs and time delays, so residents will be given an insight into the important decisions that the ouncil will need to make in the coming months.”

Kenilworth Town Council leader Coun James Kennedy added: “The town council welcomes this meeting and the opportunity to keep our residents informed of the current situation. I do hope that local people will come along to ask questions and find out more.”

The update meeting will be held at St Nicholas Church in Abbey Fields at 7.30pm. Places are limited and can be booked online at
