CAMPASPE Shire Council is undertaking a feasibility study to investigate the potential, or not, for a community hydrotherapy pool to be developed.
Mayor, Cr Adrian Weston said the study will provide a cost benefit analysis and identify community need for the service, consider partnership opportunities and assess potential locations.
“A hydrotherapy pool relieves discomfort in the injured and elderly and promotes physical wellbeing through warm water based rehabilitation exercises,” Cr Weston said.
“The study will provide a detailed cost benefit analysis with consideration to the positive impacts of the service to health care providers and the wider community.”
“Community demand, the benefits of a hydrotherapy pool to the community and the cost efficiency of establishing and maintaining such a facility will also be carefully considered.”
