Just a thought (I haven't the time to follow it up) - it could be that the part of the covenant which concerns licensed properties goes back to the establishment of the original bank that later became the Nat West. It could be that the initial founder(s) were teetotal. There was a lot of poverty aggravated by alcohol consumption in the 19th century and many businesses were founded by (religious) non-conformists.
It could be going in the park around the library area incoparating every thing in one we shall no in about ten weeks when the consultation documentss are published
 it wont interfere with the dog walkers .

Covenant means that there is a restriction on what you can do with the property.  Conditions that you have to adhere to even if you own it.  For example, for many years closed pubs would be sold with a covenant that they couldn't be reopened as a pub by any new owners.  Marple's ex NatWest was put on the market with conditions that it couldn't be used for financial use or as a  licensed premises (if I remember correctly).  If they went through with that, it will probably have covenants applied to the deeds so it can be enforced.

The other problem for the Rec is that it could be classed as a village green, and they have protection.  I don't know if the rec is a registered piece of common land, but to my lay persons eyes, it looks like it could be registered as such.

Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

Reading this thread is as close as I can imagine to the level of conversation at a Stockport Council meeting discussing Marple's swimming pool. Tenuous ideas and endless banal discussion but nothing actually happening :)
I'd keep your swimming costumes in the drawer for a good while longer.
Agree another ten years at least if then .

A vast number of people would vigorously protest at any attempt to change the use of the rec. Any such barbarous scheme would be resisted very strongly.

“Barbarous” is a bit harsh given that what we’re talking about in this thread is a community leisure centre (not a commercial development, or more housing).

Buit yeah, itll never happen, where would the dogs pee?

It is difficult to see how GT 3 Architects can draw up plans for the scheme without  knowing  where it is to be built or at least a maximum of two alternative site. So has a site been selected/identified?

LATEST UPDATE JULY 2019

Further progress is being made with the project to develop options for providing a replacement leisure centre in Marple.

This could incorporate a broader range of community facilities than those offered in the current pool building. Stockport Council has appointed GT3 Architects to lead the technical team developing concept designs for the scheme. GT3 have recently carried out a number of designs for similar schemes, which have included wet and dry sports facilities and a variety of community uses. They will be supported by a wider professional team.

It is anticipated that this phase of work will last 12-15 weeks and it will result in detailed designs being drawn up for a number of options. These will give us a better understanding of potential timescales and costs of potential schemes. In parallel with this, work is taking place to develop funding models for potential schemes.

Although we are committed to providing a replacement pool and leisure centre in Marple, we do not want to raise expectations until we are confident that we have a range of options which are deliverable. Once we get to this stage, we will be carrying out a programme of engagement with local residents and other stakeholders.

We do not anticipate being in a position to provide a further update on the project until the design options have been completed in late October/early November.

In the meantime, any queries can be directed to marplepoolproject@stockport.gov.uk

I have no problem with it being at Memorial, but I think that The Rec would be better - more space, better options for vehicular access, and no loss of amenities in either the short or long term (well except that some dog walkers would need to find somewhere else for their dogs to p*** & p***)
