The under-threat Splott pool in Cardiff could be replaced with a completely new facility as part of Cardiff Council's plans to create a £9m community hub at the site.

The proposed hub will include a 25m swimming pool, full-service health club and changing facilities for indoor and outdoor use - as well as a multi-purpose community hall, flexible meeting spaces, training rooms and community café.

Plans also include a full range of community and partner services, such as a library and neighbourhood learning services.

The ageing Splott site was earmarked for closure in late 2012, but opposition from local residents lead to a public consultation in May 2013.

As part of the proposal, the existing Splott Pool would still close - but only to make way for a new facility.

Any new development contract is also set to include community benefit clauses to bring employment and training opportunities with the new hub due for completion early in 2016.

Lynda Thorne, Cardiff Council's cabinet member for communities, housing and neighbourhood renewal, said: "The proposal to develop a new community hub in Splott shows what can be achieved by thinking imaginatively about the opportunities to invest in our local communities.

"We are facing tough financial times and so now, more than ever, it's vital that we act to protect local services by thinking innovatively and boldly by making decisions that achieve the best value and best outcomes for our citizens."

"The new hub is a brilliant example of how savings can be achieved by thinking differently about the way we deliver council and partner services."
