Australian leisure management specialists, Belgravia Leisure, has been appointed by Moreton Bay Regional Council in Queensland to operate 10 aquatic facilities across the region, to deliver improved services, new infrastructure and an estimated overall $5.7 million saving to ratepayers over the next five years.
Belgravia Leisure will now manage Council’s pools at Bribie Island, Caboolture, Deception Bay and Woodford, together with facilities at Albany Creek, Ferny Hills, Lawnton, Murrumba Downs, North Lakes and Dayboro, which have been managed by Belgravia Leisure since 2005.
Belgravia Leisure Chief Executive Officer, Nick Cox, said he is thrilled to be working with Moreton Bay Regional Council to create and deliver programs and facilities that are innovative, accessible, diverse and consistent in their quality for the community.
“Belgravia Leisure will invest more than $1.65 million to upgrade existing infrastructure across a number of pools, in the first two years,” he said.
Upgrades include an additional zero-depth water play area and a café refurbishment. Belgravia Leisure will also create up to 20 additional jobs for local residents across the facilities.
The Royal Life Saving’s Swim and Survive program is currently offered at Belgravia Leisure aquatic centres and will continue to be offered at selected Moreton Bay sites.
“We will work in partnership with Moreton Bay Council to deliver a wide range of aquatic services that are accessible and suit the community’s recreational and health needs,” Mr Cox said.
