Olinda Swimming Pool
The Olinda pool is a much-loved community facility. Unfortunately cracks were discovered in the pool more than 12 months ago, causing the council to close the pool down. In January the Yarra Ranges Shire Council passed a motion to expedite its reopening but, unfortunately, has done nothing since. It deliberately ran down the facility, closed it and now has no intention of reopening it. It is not good enough.
The conservative council clearly wants to close this facility permanently, and the Napthine government will stand by and do nothing. I am proud to say that under an Andrews Labor government Labor will deliver $500 000 to rebuild the Olinda pool and construct a playground for the Olinda community.
