Roof works FAQs


When is the work happening? 

The roof works commence Monday 5 September 2022 and will be completed by Christmas 2022. FLC staff will begin draining the pools from Monday 5 September, with contractor mobilising on site from Monday 12 September. 

Why is the work happening? 

The works are happening to replace the polycarbonate sheeting that blew off the structure in 2021. The works will replace the polycarbonate sheeting with Thermal Insulated Bondor sheeting, providing UV protection in Summer and increased thermal rating in Winter. The lighting will be upgraded, along with the perimeter café blinds and wind protection. 

What impact will there be?

The 25m pool and Leisure pool will be closed during the works period. The 50m, Program Pool, Gym, Creche and Group Fitness will operate as normal. We have placed all programming into the 50m and Program pools during the works period. 

Will there be pool space for general swimming and laps?

Yes, there will be always lanes available to members / public. However, there may be times when lane use is busier than normal. We are expecting busy times at FLC to be Monday to Friday 5.30am to 7.30am & 3.30pm to 6.30pm, along with Saturday mornings, when only 2 public lanes will be available.  

What public lanes will be available?

This will depend on the day and time. We expect lap swimming lanes only in the mornings to be available, and recreational / walking lanes in the afternoons.  We are expecting busy times at FLC to be Monday to Friday 5.30am to 7.30am & 3.30pm to 6.30pm, along with Saturday mornings, when only 2 public lanes will be available. 

How can I check lane availability?

You can check our public live lane availability. We will also have signage up within the facility.  

What can I do with my membership? 

You can suspend your membership for free should the closure affect you. The suspension period will not affect your yearly suspension allocation. To suspend your membership, please email us at

Will my Childs Swim Lessons be affected? 

All affected swimming lessons and squads have been sent information via a separate swim school newsletter and communications. If you have not received this, please email  

Will there be any changes to Aqua Classes? 

Due to the shuffling of classes, a couple of Aqua Classes will need to be cancelled. These include Tuesday 6am Shallow, Thursday 6am Deep and Saturday 7.10am Deep and 8.10am Shallow Classes. All other Aqua classes will continue. 

Where can I get updates? 

We will provide updates on our roof works update page and via social media.
