LEITH WATERWORLD

Although Waterworld closed earlier this month the campaign by Splashback to open the pool again is still alive. Splashback would like to investigate the possibility of a community buy out. The current closing date for the sale of the site is 8th February but activists would like this delayed by 6 months so they can build a business case and try to attract alternative funding. Members of the group attended the community council meeting asking for support to a motion being put to a full CityCouncil meeting on 2nd February. Leith Links Community Council agreed to offer our support to the proposal and also asked that the figures for running costs be made available to Splashback for their alternative business plan.
