More than 1000 people have already signed a petition to save the facade of the historic Austi Pavillion.
Council is planning to upgrade the ageing facility and has proposed a facelift as part of the plan.
However not everyone is happy with the idea.
Austinmer Heritage started the petition on Change.org in support of preserving the original look of the 90 year old building.
The petition says ‘Home to the Otters and Austi swimmers, the building is part of our local identity, heritage, and holds a special place in people’s hearts.
“Council’s proposed design sees the much-loved 1930s building renovated to an unrecognisable modern state. For example the original concrete masonry will be covered with ‘modern wooden panels’ and oversized plastic toilet signage…”
Anyone who supports retention of the historic facade is being asked to sign the petition HERE
