Yes, another one. This time in Chard, Somerset. Apparently £1m to fix the roof, or £3.5m for a new pool. Oh, sorry, what was that? £3.5m? Not the £13m+ figure it cost Oxford taxpayers to build the 25m pool in Blackbird Leys? A reminder that the SaveTCP cic would take over Temple Cowley Pools and operate it at no cost to the public purse and Oxford council taxpayers, working with a leisure and housing organisation to bring it back into profitable use and build houses, 50% social. At least in Chard, the council is looking for someone to take it over as a community asset - why didn't Oxford City Council do that? Read more about Chard here.
