25 Sep Harlow councillors to review plans for the upgrade of paddling pools
Harlow Council’s plans to replace the town’s five paddling pools with splash parks are to be considered in more detail by councillors.
At a Council meeting last Thursday (20 September 2018) a 1,549 strong public petition to save Harlow Town Park paddling pool was presented to councillors by a local resident.
Following a debate, there was cross-party agreement for councillors to look at the differences or the combination of splash parks and paddling pools.
Back in June the Council allocated £750,000 for an upgrade programme of the pools. It was proposed that the five pools are gradually replaced with modern splash parks. Improving toilet facilities at the pools is also part of the plans.
