Swimming pools in Pontefract, Castleford and Knottingley could close.
Wakefield Council is looking at replacing Castleford and Pontefract pools with a new leisure centre, and closing the pool but upgrading the health and fitness section at Knottingley Sports Centre.
A report into the district-wide leisure review will be discussed by the council’s Cabinet next Tuesday. The report states that swimming facilities in the Five Towns need £1.3m of repairs and that the council cannot maintain its current leisure provision.
