Plans for a second swimming pool in Weston are still being developed, more than two years after the idea was first revealed.

North Somerset Council said it was developing plans for a second swimming pool at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, in Hutton Moor Road, in March 2015.

It later emerged the new pool could include slides, rides and waves and could cost £9million.

The leisure centre is currently being extended to include a larger gym, an all-weather 4G sports pitch and new tennis courts as part of phase one of its development.

The swimming pool will be part of phase two of the project, but no date has been set about when it could go ahead.

A council spokesman said: “We are still developing business plans for phase two.

“Phase one is progressing well and is on schedule to be completed in October.”
