Kambalda Swimming Pool Notice

Please be advised that the tender for the Kambalda Swimming Pool Upgrade will be advertised on Saturday 5 January 2019 in the West Australian. The consideration of the tender will be presented to Council on Tuesday 26 February 2019. It is hoped that the successful tenderer may be able to commence the works on the pool in March 2019.

As the community would be aware the Council resolved on the 28 August for the Chief Executive Officer to call for tenders for the refurbishment of the Kambalda Swimming Pool in accordance with instrument of delegation 1.1.4. The Council was not in a position to consider any options on the Kambalda Pool until the receipt of the Kambalda West Swimming Pool Core Survey late July 2018 from Airey Taylor Pty Ltd

Workshops were held on;

  1. 12 June 2018 in Kambalda
  2. 13 June 2018 in Coolgardie
  3. 30 July 2018 with Kambalda Swimming Club in Kambalda
  4. 14 August 2018 in Kambalda

The structural Engineers report completed in July 2018 made recommendations with regards to the shell of the Kambalda Swimming Pool. This followed emptying of the pool and dewatering. To date the estimated costs are just over $152,000. This includes costs for dewatering, drilling, core sampling, detailed engineering designs and preparation of detailed specification for the pool upgrade. The complexity of the scope of works is highlighted in the specification being in excess of 186 pages.

The Shire recently applied to the Federal Government Community Sport Infrastructure grant program for $500,000 for the Kambalda Swimming Pool Upgrade. Unfortunately, the Shire was unsuccessful. Hopefully the Shire is successful in the second round of funding. The successful recipients can be found on the link below.

Currently the Shire has a grant application being considered by the State Government under the Community Sport and Recreation Facility Fund (CSRFF). The application is for $808,000. The requirements under the CSRFF is that the Local Government must provide two – thirds funding. The Shire expect to hear in February 2019 on the outcome of the application.
