Kingborough Aquatic Facility Steering Committee

Council is calling for expression of interest for committee members for a Kingborough Aquatic Facility Steering Committee.

Kingborough Deputy Mayor, Clare Glade-Wright said Council supported the idea of building of an aquatic centre in Kingborough, though understood it was something that could only be afforded with State and Federal funding help.

“To seek help with funding, Council is setting up a committee which will determine the most effective way to deliver such a facility in the future,” Cr Glade-Wright said.

“We know there is a large amount of public interest for a pool in the Kingborough community, though to determine the best way forward, we are calling for expressions of interest for a skills-based committee.

“The role of the committee will be to consider issues associated with the development of the facility in Kingborough which have been clearly identified in Council’s 2021 feasibility study.

“The committee will consider previous reports and studies, location and design options and identify any funding opportunities available.

“Up to eight members of the community with expertise in the following areas are being sought:

• Aquatic Centre operations
• Facility development
• Planning
• Design or construction
• Engineering
• Finance
• Community health and wellbeing
• Project management
• Business and
• Stakeholder engagement

“Meetings will be chaired by a Kingborough Councillor, Kasper Deane.”

“If you are interested in participating in this committee please review the documents provided on Council’s website, and submit an email outlining your skills and why you would like to be involved.

Email submissions can be sent to Chair of Kingborough Aquatic Facility Committee, Kasper Deane at and written submissions can be sent to 15 Channel Highway, Kingston Tasmania 7050. Submissions are open until the 23 July 2024.
