Good news is becoming harder and harder to find in local government, so I guess we should welcome the progress on developing a new sports centre at Bridge Park. This idea has been kicking around for ages. When I first heard about it was mooted as a thrid swimming pool for the Borough. That looks as if it is likely to be overtaken by the new swimming pool at Moberly Sports Centre now.
Getting projects such as these to proceed in the teeth of the Tory Party's cuts is a really remarkable achievement, despite the various pragmatic compromises that have to be made to make them happen.
