Swindon Borough Council has been given permission by its own planning department for the work which will cost £18,000 as part of its country park improvement plan.

The appearance of the Grade 2 1930s structure will remain largely unchanged planning documents reveal.

“The unsightly blockwork to the lower platform will be removed and replica handrails will be reinstated to all the platform levels.

The diving board will also be fully environmentally cleaned down and redecorated. Once works are completed the structure will look as originally designed.”
