In March last year, we commissioned a team of experts to conduct a feasibility study into refurbishing St George’s Pool which the Council closed in March 2020. The results showed that the pool could be refurbished and converted into an energy efficient facility. However, the Council rejected our plan and aim to go ahead with demolition and rebuilding a smaller facility surrounded by a housing development. The costs will likely go way beyond the £55 million budget as happened to Kingston Leisure Centre. We started a petition in 2020 and are still pressing for the Council to rethink its plans and refurbish the pool. This is a cheaper, quicker and more progressive way forward for the pool and the residents of Tower Hamlets – do sign it!
