KIPPAX BATHS CUSTOMER CONSULTATION  INFORMATION 

Following the approval at the councils Executive board on Wednesday 14th December 2016 the sport and active Lifestyles service is starting a programme of consultation to support a feasibility report into the re-provision of a swimming pool within the Kippax catchment area. this is an exciting opportunity to help the service identify what our customers would like to see included within a new facility.

We are keen for our customers, in the first instance, to e-mail their thoughts and views on the re-provision of a swimming pool within the Kippax catchment area. This is an exciting opportunity to help the service identify what our customers would like to see included within a new facility.

It is our intention as  consultation develops throughout 2017 to provide draft indicative plans to help bring to life  how the new centre could look.

The e-mail address is:
                     sportconsultation@leeds.gov.uk
