This is without doubt a much needed provision. A central sports centre would not only enable locals to access more sports but would bring in visitors from other areas, boosting the towns economy. A pool would teach children life saving skills , something vital in a coastal area. Young people would have somewhere to congregate instead of the streets. It would be beneficial for everyone’s health and wellbeing (hopefully reducing obesity in the area). Employing local people would help both financially and mentally & give people a reason to stay in the area rather than having to seek jobs and accommodation elsewhere. Having facilities for any person with special needs would be fantastic in an area where there is a high percentage of those with a disability and who currently have nothing or are unable to access local sports facilities.
