The planning process has begun on a €300,000 development at Castlerea swimming pool.
There’s an existing playground at the facility, but Roscommon County Council intends extending it and developing a car park.
It has lodged a Part 8 planning application, meaning local councillors will decide whether to grant permission.
They’re due to make a decision by early February and it’s hoped the development will be complete by June, when the pool reopens.
Local councillor Paschal Fitzmaurice welcomes the news.
