Save Temple Cowley Swimming Pool!

Oxford City Council is planning to close Temple Cowley Swimming Pools, comprising swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room and multi-activity room. The Council wants to build a new swimming pool (25m x 8 lane, same size as at TCP) in Blackbird Leys .  If this happens, the users of Temple Cowley will lose local provision for swimming, gym and sauna facilities, and have to travel outside the ring road.


When you sign this petition, you become part of history; with over 11,000 signatures and still growing, the petition to Save Temple Cowley Pools is the largest ever in the history of Oxford. And completely ignored by the Labour-controlled Oxford City Council - what price democracy!


By all means sign this online petition for your place in Oxford's democratic history, but please look at the information on our website and consider the other petitions there as well, on different but related topics:


The campaign is still running - contact us on if you want to help save Temple Cowley Pools...


This petition is sponsored by an ever-increasing group of residents who object to the proposed changes to their local swimming pool.
