Management of Greater Shepparton's Aquamoves aquatic and leisure complex is undertaking consultation with current members of the centre and the wider community about ways to make the complex more accessible.

Greater Shepparton City Council CEO, Bill Jaboor, today outlined the consultative procedures that have been undertaken by Aquamoves to improve visitation to the complex.

"Aquamoves management has been holding discussions with a diverse range of community organisations, including seniors, disability, youth, sporting and cultural groups, in order to find out how we can encourage these people to better use the various facilities at the centre," he said.

Key points are still being considered in regard to special access by various groups including appropriate access times, numbers of members of the groups that would use the centre and any associated costs of providing such a service and how these costs would be met.

"However," Mr Jaboor said, "any special access arrangements would only happen outside of normal operating hours and would not inconvenience other users of the facility."

Mr Jaboor added that no proposal has been developed for consideration by the Council as yet, and that further consultation would be taking place.
