Open to pub­lic ma­jor­ity of time

Canning Times - - NEWS -

“This is a rare fa­cil­ity and many travel from out­side the City of Can­ning just to ac­cess.”

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said a num­ber of fac­tors had been taken into ac­count be­fore mak­ing the de­ci­sion, in­clud­ing de­mand through in­quiries, anal­y­sis of hy­drother­apy us­age from 2013-18 and hy­drother­apy pa­tron­age from 5pm to 7pm.

He said the pub­lic would have ex­clu­sive use of the pool out­side of school terms and the 90-minute week­day slots for tod­dler classes.

“The ther­apy pool is open 97 hours each week, 85 per cent of the time there is pub­lic ac­cess avail­able,” he said.

“Any­one af­fected by lessons on week­days can ac­cess the pool be­fore 4.45pm and af­ter 6.15pm un­til the pool closes at 8.30pm.”

Mayor Ng said feed­back con­ducted dur­ing the trial pe­riod in­di­cated shared use of the pool was not con­ducive to each group’s needs and feed­back from ther­apy cus­tomers re­vealed they were un­will­ing to share the pool.
