Visiting Bowling Pool ahead of its reopening after extensive renovation works, Imran has welcome the local investment put into the site to deliver benefits for the health and wellbeing of local people.
Following extensive renovations and essential maintenance works to upgrade facilities, Bowling Pool has received a new roof, refurbishment of the pool plant, a new heating & ventilation system, major electrical work and has been decorated throughout, along with a new poolside sauna. The venue is scheduled to reopen on shortly, subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
As part of this regeneration and renovation package, a new gym and fitness area, including a studio, weights room and physio space, as well as better disabled access, is also to be developed which is expected to open later on this year.
The improvements to Bowling Pool follow an investment of around £1 million by Bradford Council after calls for the neglected building and facilities to be upgraded by local residents, Councillors and Imran.
Speaking on his visit to Bowling Pool, Imran said:
“Bowling Pool is an extremely important community asset that following its extensive renovations will bring even greater benefits to those people living in Bowling and the surrounding areas, and I look forward to it welcoming people from later this month.
“With rampant health inequalities in Bowling and across the District as a whole, I cannot stress how important it is that we have up-to-date health and fitness venues to help close this gap, and so I warmly welcome the investment that Bradford Council have made into Bowling Pool after local calls for improvements to be made.”
