Carlton Baths Redevelopment - Stage Two update for the website

Stage Two of the Carlton Baths redevelopment started 7 April 2015 and is focusing on:

  • the external landscape
  • a new and relocated toddler’s pool with a range of new and modern play equipment
  • modifications to the main pool including a ramp and re-levelled floor to provide a higher level of access to the community
  • a range of other landscape features including shade sails and further tree planting
  • modernised and relocated plant room.

This exciting project will improve the amenity of the existing outdoor space at the facility and City of Melbourne’s ongoing commitment to improving community infrastructure.

 

 

 

 

As works were being undertaken we discovered a range of structural issues within the existing pool. This means that we need to replace the entire pool shell. As a result, Carlton Baths stage two refurbishment is now expected to be complete early in the New Year.

Local residents may experience some minor disruptions during the redevelopment. We will work with the builder to minimise any disruption during the redevelopment and ensure that those that are directly affected will be you are kept informed.

 

Despite some set backs work is well underway. Take a look at the progress of redevelopment up until now.

Works are due to commence immediately to ensure construction is completed by summer 2015.  The planned construction period is the Tuesday 7th April 2015 till at least January 2016. This means that final public access to the aquatic area will be on Monday  6th of April 2015

  • If you wish to continue swimming during the redevelopment period you can do so at one of the other Active Melbourne facilities through the reciprocal rights program. Please note that all Aquatic memberships will be automatically placed on free suspension during the period of closure.

 

The redevelopment will focus on external landscape, a new and relocated toddlers pool with a range of new and modern play equipment, modifications to the main pool including a ramp and re-levelled floor to provide a higher level of access to the community, a range of other landscape features including shade sails, further tree planting and a new, up to-date and relocated plant room.

Carlton Baths Redevelopment - Stage Two

In 2012 City of Melbourne completed Stage One of the redevelopment.

 Carlton Baths redevelopment included:

  • a new entrance/reception area incorporating Family Services functions
  •  new group fitness rooms
  •  a new cycling studio
  • upgraded change facilities
  • a new weights room/gymnasium.

 

 

Subject to budget approval, Council is currently tendering for the construction of Stage Two of the redevelopment. The works for stage two will focus on:

  • the external landscape
  • a new and relocated toddlers pool with a range of new and modern play equipment
  • modifications to the main pool including a ramp and re-levelled floor to provide a higher level of access to the community
  •  a range of other landscape features including shade sails and further tree planting
  • up to-date and relocated plant room.

 

This exciting project will improve the amenity of the existing outdoor space at the facility and is an important element of City of Melbourne’s community infrastructure.

 

Should budget approval be provided, the pool area at Carlton Baths is planned to close in early April 2015 and plan reopen for use in early 2016. This will be confirmed as soon as possible, at the completion of the tender process.

 

Plans for this stage of the redevelopment will be on display at Carlton Baths reception or by visiting www.carltonbaths.ymca.org.au from early February 2015.

 

Local residents and facility users of the outdoor pool and toddlers areas may experience some disruptions during the redevelopment. We will provide further detailed and timely information to all those who will be directly affected as the need arises. We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause.
