We've prepared a draft concept plan for Fawkner Leisure Centre and we're calling on the community to tell us what you think.
The draft concept plan sets out how Fawkner Leisure Centre will develop in the future to meet the needs of our growing and changing community.
How has the draft concept plan been developed?
Earlier this year, we held a series of focus groups to ask people who used Fawkner Leisure Centre and the wider community about how this centre should be redeveloped.
You told us your ideas and priorities, and we used these to develop a new draft concept plan for the centre. In early September, Councillors resolved to include a 50m outdoor pool option in the concept plan, based on community feedback.
Thank you to everyone that provided feedback during our previous engagement on the draft concept plan.
