BLUEPRINTS for a major upgrade to Frinton and Walton Swimming Pool are due to be submitted.

Tendring Council has up to £600,000 set aside for the scheme, which includes new changing rooms and expanded facilities for the public.

Leisure boss Mark Platt hopes to keep the pool open during building work.

“We are coming up with some alternative arrangements for customer changing and a temporary entrance location which will enable us to keep the facility open for all our customers," he said.
