Leeds City Council recognises the importance of physical activity for our residents and visitors to Leeds, especially as an integral element of our planned recovery from Covid. Swimming and water based activity is a critical element of this and in particular offers significant benefits across the ages so we are pleased to be able to add our support to the communities’ efforts to bring this much valued local facility back into use. As part of this commitment the Council continues to be willing to consider how best to support the community bringing the facility back into use subject to the necessary external funding being found.
Cllr James Lewis, Leader of Leeds City Council
