Regular users and residents have already taken to social media expressing concerns over reductions to the availability of sessions and access once the works are completed.
Inverurie, in line with many north-east pools suffers from issues surrounding life-guards and qualified tutors for swimming lessons.
Recent discussion over similar issues affecting Turriff saw councillors explain that there was considerable issues around attracting qualified persons to act as life-guards and that while it was normally seen as a position held by school leavers or those moving on to further eductation, this meant they were not staying long term, and in fact, training was available for anyone fit enough to take on the role.
