Basildon Council's attempt at a consultation on the redevelopment of Lake Meadows pool has been criticised by residents. Edward Sainsbury, local campaigner, has criticised Basildon Council for running a survey which was poorly publicised and where half the questions were irrelevant.
The consultation asked residents how they currently or typically use the swimming pool - yet it has been closed for the last 9 months.
We have therefore been running a petition to demand a better consultation from the council about the redevelopment of the Lake Meadows Swimming Pool.
We believe the council can do better - if we're about to spend millions of taxpayer money on a new community facility then surely we should expect a better consultation with local residents than this?!
