Noosa Aquatic Centre to remain closed

Published:

The Noosa Aquatic Centre will remain closed for at least the next four weeks as re-opening the facility in line with Queensland Health’s restrictions of a maximum of 10 people per pool isn’t practical and would place a substantial financial burden on ratepayers.

Council said re-opening the facility during the winter months would trigger significant costs relating to heating and staffing the pools. These costs are hard to justify in light of the limited use permitted under Stage 1 of the Queensland Government’s roadmap to easing COVID-19 restrictions.

The roadmap provides a general framework and although public pools are allowed to open from Saturday, Council considers it financially responsible and appropriate to wait until further restrictions are lifted.

Council is committed to opening its public facilities when the right balance can be struck between safety, access and financial responsibility.
