Hampton Pool Trust is working to update the facilities by making long-overdue improvements to the main building, improving changing areas for families, putting in a covered seating by the café, putting in place improved gym and studio spaces and improving disabled access across throughout.
Hampton Pool is enjoyed by over six thousand people who regularly swim, exercise, attend classes and many thousands more who enjoy the concerts. However, most users will admit that the building could do with some improvements to protect its special character for everyone and give it a viable future. Hampton Pool Trust has been working on these plans for over six years with regular consultation with stakeholders. The funding for the first phase of improvements is in place and the planning application is with Richmond council.
There are however a tiny minority of people (under 100) who have objected to the updating of the building as they feel Hampton Pool does not need to evolve and be updated. They have objected to the planning application so the Trust’s Board, made up of volunteers and regular pool users, needs your support if you want to see the building updated and evolving to meet the needs of our community – now and for the future.
