MORNINGTON Peninsula residents are being invited to have their say on plans for the proposed $30 million Rosebud aquatic centre.
A business case on the proposed Rosebud Aquatic Centre handed to Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors late last year outlined three concept plans: a 25-metre indoor pool; 50-metre indoor pool; and a 50-metre outdoor pool with associated health, fitness and wellbeing facilities.
Residents provide feedback on the summary and key findings of the business case and indicate their preference for either a 25-metre or a 50-metre pool. The deadline is Wednesday 28 February.
The decision for a 50-metre indoor or outdoor pool will be made later if the longer pool option is chosen.
Feedback can be given at “pop up” sessions being held across the peninsula, via email, letter or in person and council offices.
The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said those contributing their views would be able speak directly with shire staff and “have all your questions answered”.
Cr Simon Brooks recommended residents read the business case as it “gave more detail on the proposed facility and was worth taking the time to review”.
Pop up sessions will be held 10am-1pm, Thursday 15 February, at Sorrento Shops; 3-6pm, Thursday 15 February, at Somerville Plaza; 8.30-11.30am, Saturday 17 February, at Balnarring Village Shopping Centre and 1-3pm, Saturday 17 February, at Besgrove St Rosebud, the proposed site.
