Byron Shire Council’s executive manager of corporate management, Mark Arnold, said storm damage  to the several buildings at the Byron Bay Swimming Pool complex could take up to four weeks to complete.

‘Assessors have been onsite and confirmed that the main building has sustained extensive rain and wind damage, requiring repairs to the roof and a complete electrical rewiring of the building.

‘We have the go-ahead for the electrical repairs to commence and are securing tradespeople to undertake the structural repairs.’

Mr Arnold said as yet there was no total cost estimate for the repair works.

In the interim, Byron Bay Pool season pass holders can use their pass at the Mullumbimby Pool.

‘The Byron Bay Swimming Pool and Fishheads are popular spots in town and Council apologises for the inconvenience the closures are causing.

‘Repairs are in progress and the doors will be open as soon as possible,’ he said.

The cost of the storm damage repairs to the building has been claimed under Council’s insurance.
