Campaign for third pool for Wood Green: Extended deadline (28 April) for comments & petition

Haringey Council is asking everyone for feedback on its proposals for Wood Green Regeneration. The public consultation is well underway and has been extended to 28th April 2017. Detailed instructions on how to comment and suggestions for what to include are set out below.

The club is concerned that there are no clear plans for new public pools in the Wood Green Area Action Plan and only a vague reference to leisure facilities including swimming facilities ‘which could be provided by public or private sectors’ – see Leisure on Page 95, Section 7.69 https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/commonplace-cloudfront/resources/projects/woodgreensfuture/woodgreen-aap.pdf#page=95

We have provided some key points below which you can use to make the case for new pools but please feel free to make your own points.  A detailed document from the club setting out the need for a suite of pools in Wood Green HA_case for 3rd pool_140317  will be forwarded to the Council but please do use any of the content to make your case if that’s helpful. And please encourage friends, family and colleagues to join our campaign.

How to feed back your comments to the Council

If you would like to support our campaign for new public pools in Wood Green, you can do this in one or more of the following ways:

– email Haringey Council at localplan@haringey.gov.uk and simply tell them what you think

– visit the Commonplace website at https://woodgreen.commonplace.is

sign the petition on Change.org: “Haringey Council: A third swimming pool in Haringey”.  Please spread the word to friends, family and neighbours  Petition for Third Pool in Haringey Let’s try to get to 1000 signatures. 

Here, you will be able to comment on any aspects of the plan (there is only one paragraph on sport and leisure) and you can read what other people are saying.

Importantly other people will be able to see your comments and this will help to get some momentum going…. but time is short so don’t delay. 

To find the section which includes leisure facilities, follow this route:

Click on ‘Managing growth/view details and comment’

The information on this page will take you to different bits of the plan relating to ‘growth’

At the bottom of the page you can click on ‘view comments’ and see what others are saying.

To make your comments, click on ‘what do you think about this proposal/sign in to comment.

You will be asked to provide your first name, an email address and a password and then you can go on to add your comment.

Please ask for pools in Wood Green and better facilities for competitive aquatics and make any other comments you feel are important or relevant.

There are exhibitions in Wood Green Library on 14 March 10am-2pm, 16 March 4-7pm and 18 March 11-4pm. Public Voice are running a series of workshops.

KEY POINTS

Haringey has public pools at only 2 locations: Tottenham Green and Park Road.

There is competition for pool time at these sites and demand is increasing with demographic change.

Haringey Aquatics has protected time at these pools but it is not sufficient to meet current demand and is limiting the opportunities and ambitions of young people in Haringey.

We will begin to turn away children who want to join the club this year.

Our Learn to swim programme at Northumberland Park has helped address inequality but is at capacity; its longer-term future is

uncertain.

Existing facilities for competive swimming, diving and water polo in Haringey are very limited.

There has been no public swimming pool in Wood Green for the past 20 years.

In 2013, Haringey Council identified the need for new pools and a leisure centre to meet population growth and deficits in health and physical activity. Wood Green was identified by the Council as a prime location for the new sport and leisure complex

But the current Wood Green Regeneration plan does not include any plans for public swimming pools or a new sport and leisure complex.

It is important that the opportunities provided by Wood Green regeneration are not missed

It is a timely opportunity to plan for the future, meet demand and seek partnerships and other external funding to get new pools built and managed.

A public swimming pool in Wood Green would be very popular with residents

A new pool/pools would significantly increase participation in physical activity, fitness, swimming ability and health outcomes locally.

A new pool/leisure complex in Wood Green would provide

opportunities for employment for local people.

A new pool or pools would provide many more young people with the opportunity to train with Haringey Aquatics in a club environment, to excel at sport, build confidence, self esteem, commitment and provide role models for peers. Training with the club also opens up a pathway for young people to employment opportunities in aquatic sport and leisure, independent of academic achievement.

In addition to the provision outlined above, one or more strategically placed ‘community pools’ would enable Haringey Aquatics to offer its low cost, high quality learn to swim programme to more families with low incomes or no culture of swimming.

There is an opportunity with Wood Green Regeneration to raise our sights in Haringey and take aquatic sport to another level. Current facilities are limited and limiting. Haringey should aspire to become a centre of excellence with state of the art facilities for competitive swimming, diving and water polo as well as other sports like synchronized swimming and triathlon.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Road closure: Please bear with us!

So, we are well in to week 1 of 5 months worth of traffic disruption due to the closure of Wightman Road. Whilst we realise that this could have a major impact on some of you, we do need to look at the wider picture.

This is not the first time (in recent years), that our club has had to work through tough times. We managed before and again we will come through this.
Over the next couple of weeks, drivers will unfortunately be hitting traffic whichever way they turn as more than 16,000 drivers use Wightman Road everyday.
One of the issues surrounding the traffic is because the traffic lights have not been updated to reflect that vehicles can not turn right into Wightman Road. Hopefully this will be rectified fairly quickly.
Another is that although signs relating to the closure have been up for a while, drivers are only now re-routing.
Once everyone has found their preferred route, traffic between the West/East of the borough should calm down.

We have worked out a couple of routes that may benefit swimmers getting to/from training below.
Possibility #1 – towards Wood Green
Park Road – Alexandra Palace Way – Station Road – Lordship Lane – Downhills Way – Downhills Park Road – Philip Lane

Possibility #2 – towards Finsbury Park
W7 to Finsbury Park Station
Victoria Line Tube to Seven Sisters

As a club, we will aim to keep abreast of the traffic situation and make plans moving forward during the disruptions.
You can also keep up to date by viewing the dedicated page on the council website www.haringey.gov.uk/parking-roads-and-travel/roads-and-streets/road-safety/road-safety-consultations/bridge-reconstruction-work-wightman-road

Although this will be a testing time for some of us, please put in an extra thought for those that live on or off of Wightman Road, many of which will not be able to use their vehicles for the next few months.

We also need to bear in mind that both of our coaches live to the east of the Borough – they will also be working on ways of getting through the traffic in order to provide the quality coaching we are used to.

Stay positive!

Water Polo U14s in second place in London Winter League Division 2

Haringey Aquatics U14s are standing at 2nd place after round one of Division 2 of the London Winter League. The team worked hard to beat Otter 3-2 and then had an easier game against Bexley. We were keeping up with Penguin initially but tired in the second half. We felt we could compete in the last game against Bexley, but did not have enough energy to really challenge them and lost 3-5 in the end. We only took a small squad of 8 (7 players in the water, 1 sub) so perhaps we should aim to take around 10 in future.

Rounds 2 and 3 are on the 28th January and 25th February. Keep the date free!
