Aquatic Centre Construction Commencement

At its meeting on Monday 24 June, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council will consider tender submissions for the Rosebud Aquatic Centre Construction. This meeting will be held at the Council Chambers in Rosebud at 5pm and community members are welcome to attend. 

Construction will include environmental design features to improve efficiency throughout the building. We'll be installing a 231kW solar panel system on the aquatic centre roof to generate a significant share of the electricity use. Air pressurisation will be used in the pool hall to reduce heat loss from the pool when not in use and alleviates the need for pool blankets. Others ways energy use will be minimalized is by installing insulation on the walls and floor of the concrete pools to reduce heat loss, having an air-tight building, using natural lighting, and having energy efficient water treatment plant and equipment.

A community event will follow to mark the start of construction in July 2019.

After considering community feedback on the Rosebud Aquatic Centre Business Case, Council confirmed it will progress with a 50-metre indoor pool for the future Rosebud Aquatic Centre, set to be constructed at Besgrove Street Rosebud.

Council received feedback from more than 7,000 participants from across the peninsula during consultation on the length of the main indoor pool.

Three concept plans have been developed for a proposed public swimming pool in Rosebud.

Land adjoining the Shire offices in Besgrove Street has been named as the preferred site for the pool, which is expected to expedite the development of an aquatic facility in Rosebud

The concept plans include options for a 25-metre indoor pool, a 50-metre indoor pool and a 50-metre outdoor pool.  All options include a learn to swim pool,  warm water program pool and associated health, fitness and well-being facilities.

The mix of components shown in the three concept plans will provide for traditional aquatic pool programs including training, school competitions, education, health and fitness and special events.

The concepts also show several health, fitness and wellness components such as:

  • a multi-purpose room for health and fitness classes
  • a wellness centre featuring consulting, steam and sauna rooms catering for specialist services such as massage and physiotherapy, relaxation, older adults and sports recovery
  • a café offering high-quality food services
  • high priority disability access
    • access ramps to the main pool (25 metre and 50 metre options), learn-to-swim pool and warm water program pool
    • wheelchair access to the spa within the warm water program pool
    • family change rooms for persons with a disability or special needs
    • all the pool decks will be on the same level avoiding the need for any lifts.
