Despite months of campaigning by local residents, it has been confirmed that Pitsea Pool will definitely close by Sunday 2 December.
It is believed if that the pool could close before this date if the council are able to relocate classes to another swimming pool. With local residents being affected, Basildon Council have created a ‘help desk’ in order to aid those affected by the closure.
The local residents of Pitsea had been in dispute with the council ever since the closure of Pitsea swimming pool in favour of the towns regeneration. In September, it was announced that Pitsea pool would change to private ownership in order to proceed with the knocking down of the building.
