New pools planned for city

Have your say

Councillors will be advised to back plans for a new city centre pool in Bradford on Tuesday.

If the proposal is approved by Bradford Council’s Executive a phased programme will begin to build the new city centre venue plus three new community pools. The city centre facility and a new community pool in South Bradford would be the first to be built under the proposals.

The new facilities will replace the Richard Dunn Sports Centre (RDSC), Bowling, Queensbury and Bingley pools - which would be sold. A site in Nelson Street has been acquired for the city centre pool. The other proposed sites for new facilities are: Squire Lane for north Bradford, Sedburgh playing fields for south Bradford and Asa Briggs Recreation Ground for south west Bradford.
