Minsthorpe Baths

The south-east of Wakefield has been without a public swimming baths now for over two years.  The community campaigned hard to secure a replacement pool and I know from chatting to people that they are wondering what’s happening with the plans to build the baths on the site of Minsthorpe School.   

Following a recent meeting that I requested with the Leader of Wakefield Council, Peter Box, I have received an assurance that the proposed plans are underway.  I was told that a time table is in place for the planning application to be submitted and then the process of going out to tender for the building contract will commence.  The expected opening date will be around the beginning of January 2017.  

I will continue to follow this issue closely to ensure that our community gets the public swimming pool that it needs and deserves.  I will also monitor the proposed timetable.  None of us want to see the opening date being pushed back.

Nearly a year on and still nothing. Full of promises but when it comes to putting money where there mouth is , nothing. Wakefield town centre gets everything and the surrounding areas get nothing as usual. Jon trickett you’re a waste of time. You’ve done nothing for our area.
