'New pool is no good in the wrong place'
BUS routes from all over the Grimsby area meet at Nuns Corner – the "gateway" to Scartho Pool.
How can a few buses down narrow Dudley Street and Cromwell Road ever serve the new pool so well?
Councillor Jane Hyldon-King says people should get used to using two buses. Some children, use to travelling alone, could well be stopped by parents anxious about bus changing and extra expense.
This would be cruel and against the Olympic spirit of encouraging sport and also cruel and disruptive for the residents of these inadequate roads.

However fantastic the plan, Cromwell Road is the wrong place for a new pool, especially without a high diving board, and perhaps saunas should be left to private gyms.
Far better to keep the Scartho site, even if it means the pool's closure for a year or two for rebuilding or refurbishment.
How can it be right for a few people to ride rough-shod over a whole town? Why are they hell-bent on moving from the Scartho site?
The Grimsby Telegraph has reported that many meetings have been held; where has the money come from to pay for the architects for work already done and why no tenders – is this legal?
A fantastic pool (in the council's opinion), but as stated, it would be no good in the wrong place, out of the area of a large amount of the populous of Grimsby and thus it could be under-used.
