Outdoor swimming pool plans for Tattershall holiday resort

A significant investment in the holiday leisure facilities

A new outdoor swimming pool has been planned for a Tattershall holiday resort.

The plans, by Away Resorts, have been submitted to East Lindsey District Council for the Tattershall Lakes Country Park.

As well as the pool, the application includes a bar and changing facilities, a terrace and another building for plant equipment and storage.

The application to the authority says the aim ‘is to provide enhanced leisure facilities’ managed by the holiday park and accessible for guests.

It says: “The proposed works represent a major investment in the park and also confirm Away Resort Limited‟s aspirations to provide improved guest facilities and to generally enhance the holiday park.

“Moreover, it is recognised that good sport and recreation provision can help to underpin the economic structure of a holiday park by creating a desirable holiday environment, which therefore attracts more guests and in turn contributes a positive economic benefit to the wider area.”

Earlier this year, the facility also put in plans to extend the indoor swimming pool which was constructed in 2011.

The report adds: “The client has identified that the swimming pool facilities need to be expanded further due to increase demand and it is considered that an outdoor swimming pool will provide a socially inviting facility.

“It is recognised that sport and recreation can help to underpin the economic structure of the holiday park through creating a desirable holiday environment.

“This vision has a positive economic benefit to the wider district through tourism by attracting more visitors to the area.”
