Selby pools set to benefit from efficiency cash

Selby and Tadcaster Leisure Centres set for cash boost.

Two Selby-area swimming pools are set to benefit from new cash to improve energy efficiency.

The Sport England Swimming Pool Support Fund is supporting investment into energy saving systems at public pools around the country.

Both of North Yorkshire Council's pools in the Selby area - at Tadcaster and Selby Leeisure Centres - and two others across the county have been successfull in their bid for a slice of the £60 million available.

Tadcaster has been offered £61,000 for pool covers and meter monitoring devices while Selby will take £161,275 for the installation of new solar panels.

NYC's assistant director for leisure, Jo Ireland, said: “There were over 700 applications so we are delighted to have been offered £288,186 for our facilities. Swimming pools are high energy consumers and with rising costs everything that can be done to reduce those bills is welcome. Swimming pools are vital community assets and important in helping people to keep physically active.”

Figures from Sport England have shown that 4.7 million people swim twice or more a month, making it one of the most popular physical activities in the country.
