State Of Fort Regent Could Lead To Closure

11th September 2018

The States might have no option but to close Fort Regent unless something is done to stop it deteriorating.

That’s the warning from Economic Development Minister, Senator Lyndon Farnham.

He’s told the States Assembly it would be left with no option but to close the leisure centre completely if it reaches the point that public safety is put at risk:

“We are starting to see the degradation of the property now surface, and affect users of the Fort. When the safety of the public is called into question, we have but one option…

“If that is to happen – and I hope that we can avoid it – but ironically it might prove the catalyst to give this Assembly and government the kick in the pants it needs to get something done about it.”
