Sarah welcomes plan to save sauna at Outer West Pool

April 3, 2012 8:02 AM

Local action has saved the sauna in the Outer West Pool. A petition was raised by local people against the proposed closure. The council had wanted to turn the space into a dance studio instead.

"Funding from West Denton Ward Committee and other neighbouring wards has supported an alternative plan" says Denton Councillor Sarah Cross. A customer user group supported by officers and Councillors identified an alternative scheme to refurbish the existing provision and to convert an adjoining community room into a dance multi- use studio.

So now there will be the installation of a new sauna cabin, shower tiling and rest area flooring, together with conversation of the next door room to the dance studio, through the removal of partition walls, a lighting upgrade, additional air conditioning unit, mirrored wall and cushioned flooring.

"This is a good solution for everyone" says Sarah.
