Statement by Peterborough City Council on Tuesday 5th April:

"You will be aware that we have been working to progress the sale of St George’s Hydrotherapy Pool to a private physiotherapy provider. I am writing to let you know that we have decided not to progress with the sale of the pool at this time.

We are now planning to mothball the facility to give us further time to consider all our options for the site. We are also working with Heltwate Special School, which is already at capacity and shares the site, to understand if they could make use of the building to help with this.”

St George's Friends and Service Users are very sorry for the distress this news will undoubtedly cause. We will do all we can and keep this website updated as further information becomes available.
