Liberal Democrat bosses at the Guildhall have been forced to back down on plans to make budget savings at the cost of East Hull baths. Worried users have contacted me regarding the future of the much-loved baths after staff had told them about plans for closure. However, The Liberal Democrats have been forced to climb down from their plans. Councillor Kalvin Neal was forced to admit defeat at this weeks council cabinet meeting.
“ I had asked officers to look at all leisure centres as part of the budget process, but I can say now that East Hull Baths will not be closing.” said Councillor Neal
That’s good news for local users of the baths. But the question of were the Lib Dems intend to make their budget saving remains.
