Lake Macquarie City Councillor and Mayoral Candidate Jason Pauling today outlined the Lake
Macquarie Liberals support for the re-establishment of Belmont Baths.
“Belmont Baths were once an iconic attraction for the Belmont area and when re-established will be
once again.” Cr Pauling said.
“East Ward Candidate Nick Jones and myself are both strongly committed to seeing the Belmont Baths
re-established and the former tourism attraction delivered. The time of tea-cup politics is over and it’s
time for commitment and action.”
“Belmont is undergoing a renaissance at present, but it desperately needs a suitable icon to help
enhance its attraction as a tourism and social focal-point.”
“In decades past the baths provided a safe area for children to learn to swim, athletes to train and
families to enjoy. The community support to re-establish the baths is very strong and the Lake
Macquarie Liberals have listened.”
“The Liberal candidates for the forthcoming Council elections are united in their support for the
Belmont Baths proposal and will work to deliver them in the immediate future” Cr Pauling said.
