Julian Welcomes Short-Term Security for Yearsley Pool

March 3, 2015

Julian is pleased that Yearsley Pool’s future has been secured for a further 5 years after the recent Council budget agreement.

Julian has been corresponding with constituents, the Council, and the future operators of the pool Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL) in an effort to keep this great community facility open.

After meeting with Andrew Laslett from the Council at Yearsley Pool in December, Julian attended the first Yearsley Pool Review meeting in January of this year. Last week Julian met with representatives from GLL, who will shortly be operating the pool and are also developing the Community Stadium and its leisure facilities.

After the announcement Julian said, “We now have a great opportunity to work with the new operators of Yearsley Pool to find a more financially successful model for the Pool moving forward.

“It is imperative that we do not rest on our laurels and waste the reprieve given to this community asset. Everyone accepts that Yearsley Pool cannot continue to operate whilst making such large losses, and its long-term future will rely on finding a solution to its reliance on Council subsidies.

“I will continue to work with the community, the Council, and the new operators to find a solution to Yearsley Pool’s financial shortfalls in order to secure its long-term future.”
