Submission of application to Sport England Swimming Pool Support Fund

Application to Sport England’s Swimming Pool Support Fund #2 for swimming pools in North Yorkshire.
Phase #2 of this scheme is designed to support investment into energy saving systems for swimming pools. The £40million capital programme is available to all public swimming pools in the UK and funding will be awarded between £20,000-£1,000,000 per council area.
There are x16 Council owned swimming pools in North Yorkshire, however, the funding process requires both Council and Community/Charity owned swimming pools to form a collective application for each Council area. The application process requires detailed technical building and plant information for each swimming pool and there is stringent criteria guidance that may preclude some swimming pools, the eligibility of each North Yorkshire owned swimming pool is currently being assessed.
It is proposed that an application is submitted for eligible North Yorkshire owned swimming pools and community/charity partner swimming pools before the 17th October 2023 application submission deadline.
