Dream swimming pool talks to begin
The trustees behind Dartmouth’s £2.4 million dream swimming pool are planning talks with the Tone Leisure ‘opposition’ which could include compensation claims.
The trustees will be meeting in the next week or so with the leisure company which runs South Hams Council’s leisure complexes at Totnes, Kingsbridge and Ivybridge.
Tone Leisure runs swimming pools at Kingsbridge and Ivybridge for the district council as well as the Dartmouth leisure centre next to which the trustees plan to build the new community pool. One of the issues likely to be discussed will be the district council condition that the trust could have to pay compensation to Tone for any impact the new pool could have on the existing businesses.
Trustee Andy Borthwick confirmed that the meeting with Tone Leisure was being arranged and that it would involve ‘wide ranging’ talks.
And he said that he was confident that the talks with Tone would sort out any problems – including any to do with compensation.
