Cessnock City Council is calling on the community to have their say on the draft Cessnock Pool Masterplan which is now on public exhibition until Tuesday 22 October 2019.  

The draft Cessnock Pool Masterplan has been prepared based on a detailed site analysis, site investigations, along with community and stakeholder engagement.  

Key items identified in the draft Masterplan include the construction of a splash park, construction of a program pool, solar heating, relocated heat pumps, additional seating and more shade.  

Check out the video on Council’s website that shows what the Cessnock Pool could look like once the plan is implemented.  

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent is encouraging residents to view the Masterplan and have their say.  

“Cessnock Pool was constructed in the 1930s and has been a fantastic community facility for so many over the years and it will be wonderful to see this plan come to life.”  

“In particular, the addition of the splash park for little ones and program pool for learn to swim classes will be great for our local families and young people.”  

“Council’s long term strategic plan is to provide the community with a bigger and better facility, however we want to ensure the current facility is meeting our community’s needs now. The improvements planned for the pool will no doubt be welcomed by our existing pool users.”   

The public exhibition period of the draft Cessnock Pool Masterplan will be from Monday 23 September to Tuesday 22 October 2019. The draft Masterplan can be viewed on Council’s website, Council’s Admin Building, Cessnock City Libraries and Cessnock Pool. Written submissions can be sent via email to recreation@cessnock.nsw.gov.au or posted to Cessnock City Council.
