SWIMMING could be available at a new reservoir for the community and visitors to enjoy.

Around 300 people attended three exhibitions during the second stage of public consultation for a second reservoir in Cheddar.

Bristol Water spokesman Jeremy Williams said the feedback was generally positive, with issues over whether swimming should be allowed dominating the discussion.

MP Tessa Munt discussed the plans with Mr Williams and asked how leisure facilities could be combined with the reservoirs.

She said: “I had a positive meeting with Jeremy Williams and really can’t stress enough that Bristol Water seems willing to listen to any suggestions put forward.

“Only by taking part in the consultation will we get the facility we want.”
