Casino Memorial Swimming Pool

Richmond Valley Council is seeking community input on the best way the Casino Memorial Pool could be redeveloped. Every voice in our region is important, therefore, please follow this link and have your say.

A draft plan of upgrades for the site is now on public display following Council’s decision to endorse the draft master plan at its September meeting.

Future works as identified within the draft master plan are unfunded. The estimated redevelopment cost of the project is $8 million. It is proposed the information supplied in an adopted master plan will allow Council to consider funding options as well as pursue grant opportunities into the future. It is recognised that substantial investment is needed to allow the pool to function appropriately and meet the needs of the community. 

Key elements identified in the draft are:

  • Renewal of filtration system for pools
  • Access ramps into main pool
  • Water splash play space
  • Indoor heated Learn to Swim and therapy pool with all ability access
  • New twin tube water flume slide
  • Refurbishment of entrance, kiosk, and development of a food court
  • New children’s wading pool

The above elements had earlier been identified by the community in the Community Strategic Plan consultation forums, as well as correspondence received in recent years.

Information will be compiled throughout the consultation period and a more detailed draft proposal will be submitted to Council for adoption as an approved master plan.

We invite public comment on the draft master plan, which can be viewed at Council’s offices in Casino and Evans Head, or downloaded from this page. If you would like to make a submission, address it to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10, Casino NSW 2470 or email council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au.

You can also make a submission via our online form at www.richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au/page/Your_Council/On_Exhibition

Written and online submissions will be accepted by Council until 4.30pm Monday 5 November. Further information is available from Council on 6660 0300.
