Don’t give up hope on Beauty Point pool, MLC urges.

The Legislatives Councillor for Rosevears, Kerry Finch says he’s surprised and disappointed at the decision by the Australian Maritime College to go ahead with the closure of its indoor sporting facility at Beauty Point.

“But I am not giving up hope that the community can continue to have access to the swimming pool,” he said.

“You can understand the AMC taking the opportunity to get another training provider into the campus, but there are still a number of ‘ifs’,” Mr Finch said.

He said the AMC Action Centre group, set up to save the AMC pool for community use should not give up hope.

Mr Finch said he would be trying to arrange a meeting with the AMC’s general manager, Stephen Burke to sound out opportunities for continued public access to the pool.

“This might turn out to be the best way to secure the pool for the public.”.
