Swimming Centres Review - Have Your Say

Swimming Centres Review – have your say and let us know what you think about the proposed redevelopment options.

Consultation period: 28 February - 9 April 2017


The Council is seeking feedback from the community on the proposed redevelopment options for both the Norwood and Payneham Memorial Swimming Centres.

For more information, contact the Acting General Manager, Corporate Services on 08 8366 4585 or sperkins@npsp.sa.gov.au



In 2016, the Council undertook a review of the Norwood and Payneham Memorial Swimming Centres and has committed to maintaining a two centre, outdoor pool model.

Both the Norwood and Payneham Memorial Swimming Centres will be redeveloped to ensure that they continue to provide adequate facilities for the community over the next 20 years.

The objective of the Swimming Centres Review is to develop a longer term strategy for the Council’s Swimming Centres to ensure that:

  • the Council’s Swimming Centre assets are managed, maintained and developed in such a way that will effectively meet the current and changing needs of the community
  • the ratepayer subsidy is maintained at current levels or reduced over the next five years.  

Following the Review, the Council is committed to the two centre outdoor swimming centre model.

Future refurbishment options

An important component of the review is the formation of focus groups to assist in the development  of Options for the Swimming Centres.

The Focus Groups comprise a random selection of citizens from the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters who will be invited to participate together with other key stakeholders including but not limited to Swimming Clubs, the Education Department, Swimming Centre User Groups, Swimming Centre Staff and representatives from Disability and Aged groups
