The much-loved Winch Pool - first opened in 1963 - is in need of a revamp after many years of providing summer fun for local families.
The revamped facility must fit within the existing footprint, include components that are appropriate for a local level community aquatic facility, provide a better operational performance and be a space that encourages ongoing community involvement and activation.
Share your views to help us understand what aquatic facilities are needed in Winchelsea into the future.
Have your say
We want to make sure everyone has a chance to have their say, so we're seeking input from pool users as well as people who don’t use the pool. Please encourage family and friends to share their views too.
We are also seeking expressions of interest for a community reference group - read the Terms of Reference(DOCX, 137KB) here. If you are interested in applying, you can do so via the survey.
Feedback and expressions of interest close 31 January 2022. If you have any queries or you’d like a printed survey sent to you, please contact the Recreation Planning Team at email@example.com, or 5261 0600.

November 2021 - January 2022: engagement process
February 2022: develop option/concept for community comment
March/April 2022: refine and finalise option/concept of future facility.
March 2023: potential for construction works to begin after pool season concludes (NOTE: we’ll be in a better position to determine when works would start once we know the preferred design and components and whether we need to seek external funding or consider staging works over several years).
