The town pool is a symbol of community. To be Australian is to swim and for decades, the swimming tradition has been kept alive by handing down this life skill to the next generation. For regional Australia, vibrant aquatic centres facilitate Learn to Swim programs, house swimming clubs and support population attraction and retention. Just as they have in the past, it is now more vital than ever that councils, with the support of their communities, continue to invest in their assets for the future.
“Grow up in Australia and you’re just meant to know how to swim”
– Benjamin Law, Places We Swim
With an abundance of recreational activities available to communities urban and regional, council-run aquatic facilities often operate below breakeven. Ageing assets become a cost liability for councils and this is where KSM Advisory can help. Our Revitalise and Reimagine program helps your council and/or aquatic centre strategise for the future. Through careful asset planning, management consulting and prioritising what matters to your community, we can help you prepare for the future, together.
“Martin worked closely with our team and key stakeholders on a Strategic Review and Business Plan over a 6-month period. I am confident we will look back in years to come and see the impact of his consultation with us having made a tangible positive contribution to the Aquatic Centre and indeed, town of Alice Springs.”
