Dubbo Regional Council parks and landcare services director Ian McAlister was thrilled with the turnout at two community meetings held to discuss the future of Wellington Pool and has reminded the community that consultation on the project has only just begun.
“We had about 80 people attend across the stakeholder meetings and two meetings on Monday and Tuesday which was great to see,” Mr McAlister said.
“There was a good community buy in to the project and we gathered a lot of great feedback which is exactly what we were after.”
“If anyone wasn’t able to make it to the meetings there are still plenty of ways for them to have their say on what they would like to see in an aquatic centre at Wellington.”
“If anyone is heading to the Wellington Show this weekend they should keep an eye out for consultants who will be conducting surveys.”
“We will start conducting phone surveys next week, there is also an online survey available at www.dubbo.nsw.gov.au or go directly to www.surveymonkey.com/r/wellingtonpool and a hard copy of the survey is also available at Customer Service at the Council Chambers in Wellington at the corner of Nanima Crescent and Warne Street.”
“Community involvement in this project is essential so we can deliver the best facility for the residents.
