Maleny & District Indoor Aquatic Centre progress report

Councillor Jenny McKay has placed $40,000 of her discretionary money on the table  to employ the Strategic Leisure Group to compile a report for Council which will include recommendations on the a site for the Maleny & District Indoor Aquatic Centre.

David Mason and Jason Leslie from the consulting firm, Strategic Leisure Group, began their consultancy work with the Maleny community in August including locals schools, organisations and business.    The Strategic Leisure Group has over 30 years experience in delivering plans for sport, recreation and community facilities, services and programs.

The final report should be handed to Council early December.     Their brief covers several areas such as feasibility, site location, design work, business plan, etc.

Its important for the best outcome for our community that all relevant bodies have input into this right now - health professionals included;  Cr McKay wants anyone who would like to have input into this consultancy report to contact David Mason on 3823 5688 This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

There have been many consultancy reports done for Council over the past 10 years on this project, and hopefully this report will finally allow Council to move forward in providing adequate aquatic facilities for the Maleny and District community.

The Maleny community itself has already raised over $300,000 towards this new facility which will include amongst other things a hydrotherapy pool, 10 lane pool, learn to swim pool, and gym.
