LABOR candidate for South Coast, Fiona Phillips said Shoalhaven City Council would be left embarrassed if something wasn’t done to upgrade the amenities and provide a community room as part of the new Nowra Pool upgrade.
“The original $3 million low interest loan from the NSW government was to go towards the full upgraded facility including amenities, community room, cafe, etc,” she said.
“The current council cut the council budget to save money.
“Now the new state of the art nine lane pool with heating, despite having a ramp for the disabled, will have no amenities for the disabled.
“The facility will also have no community room, so is virtually useless for any school, community or sporting group requiring a dry weather room to host carnivals or other bookings.”
