Statement on Tenterden Leisure Centre swimming pool closure

Over the last few weeks we have received a significant number of complaints from the general public regarding the current pool closure in Tenterden.

Ashford Borough Council’s position is that Tenterden Leisure Centre pool was able to open on 1st December 2022 and the Trust were advised accordingly. Any further closures are down to the decisions of the Trust and the operator.

This position was confirmed by our CEO Tracey Kerly at a Tenterden Town Council meeting on Thursday 12 January. As ABC are the landlord and insurers for the building this view has been reached with the aid of the appropriate safety checks.

Ashford Borough Council are very keen to see the swimming pool at Tenterden Leisure Centre re-open as soon as possible and we continue to have dialogue with the Trust and the operator.
