The college site is a short walk off Hibbert Lane.  Hibbert Lane is served by the hourly 375 bus (Mellor to Stockport via Stepping Hill), Monday to Saturday.  It is also served by the 394 (Glossop to Stepping Hill) that runs every two hours Monday to Friday.
NO buses sunday near there .

Memorial park would be the best solution, with all the bus routes practically passing by its doorstep.
And being close enough for all the local schools to use including those in marple bridge, possibly without needing buses.

As a temporary solution whilst the existing library is replaced, the closed pool could be covered like they did in the past for winter dances and used as the library. I'm sure the scouts hut could be used for the community groups and given a grant to cover the costs of its additional use.

The buses that currently serve the site are not particularly frequent, but then there's only one bus an hour to new mils at the moment and that's the pool that my wife is currently using

The college site is just over half a mile walk from the bus stops on Stockport Road - that distance is not exactly insurmountable and the buses there are much more frequent.

Memorial Park though would be a much better idea

As they state in the last update :
The range of facilities which might be incorporated
The scope for incorporating a range of additional community facilities with the leisure offer


The only logical location is in Memorial Park and to knock down the current community facilities ( library / senior citizens  / health centre / scouts...) obviously not the main type II listed building !!

Marple Memorial Park is at the heart of the local community, housing the library, health centre and other public buildings.

That seems a quite logical and sensible option to me.

Why not come to an arrangement with the college over use of facilities and build it there. There are the transport links, space for carparking etc etc and it could compliment the college's sports provision.

1000 16 to 19 year olds manage it each day.

Transport Links!..... Windlehurst and/or Stockport Road. Nice to see you retain a sense of humour/optimism  :-\

As I've said before, the council do have the land, they own the old Peacefield playing field. The only access to this is through the college, next to the large sports hall.

Case in point.  New pool going to be built next to Hyde leisure pool.  Six lane, 25m pool.
Save the money and put it towards better transport links to a larger and better pool in Hyde. We'll wait 5 years + and IF there's a decision to build a pool in Marple it'll be the size of a duck pond and probably have to accommodate them as well when they're evicted from Etherow park.

I t will take a longish time you cant just build something some were even if a site is found .

They have the plans.  They have the site.  They have the money.

They do not have the contractors.

The first was Carillion.  Who went bust.  So they reprocured.  Only for the second contractor to pull out recently

A new pool for Marple is going to take years even if it all goes smoothly.

I'd say a year to decide that you probably might want to build something, somewhere does not smack of a great deal of urgency or give me a huge amount of confidence that a new pool is likley to be available anytime soon!
Words are trains for passing through what really has no name...

Please just get on with it SMBC. Over a year now, just to decide that the old pool cannot be repaired. How long to find a site, design the building, get planning, raise funds and then build it.

This should be a priority, but it really doesn’t feel like it.
