With swim season set to start this Saturday, November 7, Council is looking ahead to the future of Cabonne's pools.

Council is in the early stages of master planning for seven swimming centres - Cudal, Cumnock, Canowindra, Eugowra, Manildra, Molong and Yeoval.

"The masterplan study is to develop a long-term plan that responds to current and forecast community and infrastructure needs," council said.

"This first stage of consultation, we're gathering information to assist in the development of the draft strategy. A survey will be sent directly to user groups including school and other community groups.

"This community survey has been set up to hear from residents and interested persons on your current use or non-use of the swimming centres and determine the priorities you would like to see for them in the future."

This first phase of consultation concludes on November 27, 2020.

With pools to open this weekend, special arrangements are in place for the five village pools. All but Canowindra and Molong are considered by the council to be "village pools".

Season passes are available at the village pools and new this year is a sheet of 10 entry tickets, again only at the village pools.

"This is to cut down on cash handling," council said.

Season passes and 10 visit tickets available to purchase now with EFTPOS from Cudal and Molong Council offices. Passes and tickets will be available for purchase at the village pools when they open.
