A Great Harwood swimming pool is set to undergo essential renovation work – despite losing £400,000 worth of funding.
Improvements at Mercer Hall baths are set to go ahead after the council pledged to spend £80,000 on essential repairs at the facility.
The announcement comes just weeks after government funding for a major refurbishment of the leisure facility was pulled due to government cuts.
Councillor Lynn Wilson, cabinet member for leisure, said she was delighted with the news.
She said: "I’m thrilled to announce that essential maintenance work, including replacing the ageing boiler, is set to start soon.
"While funding from the government is no longer available for improvements to the pool itself, we will carry on working with Leisure in Hyndburn to look for other funding avenues."
A start date for the work is yet to be announced, but Leisure in Hyndburn and the council has promised to try and keep disruption to a minimum while work is ongoing.
Last month it was announced that £900,000 of improvements which were set to be made at Hyndburn Leisure Centre and Mercer Hall baths had been scrapped.
The schemes were set to revitalise the swimming pool and changing areas and improve energy efficiency.
The public had said they would be more likely to swim if the facilities were modern, bright and inspiring.
Peter Baron, chief executive of Leisure in Hyndburn, said any original plans for the building will have to be scaled back due to the cuts.
He said: "We know what the shortcomings are at the baths, what the customer wants, and what needs doing at the pool.
"Because of the structure of the building it is going to be difficult to be radical.
"What we are having to do now is review our plans. We have gone from having nearly £400,000 to about a fifth of that. It is unrealistic to carry out the plans which we originally had."
