Membership payments to Hythe Pool have been suspended as the public venue goes into its third week of closure.
The newly refurbished building in South Road, Hythe, lost part of its roof to Storm Angus which tore through most of the county overnight on Saturday, November 19.
The roof was only months old and was fitted as part of a major refurb throughout the summer which cost the tax payer £184,000.
The pool remained shut throughout the school holidays in the peak of its popularity to allow the works to go ahead.
But it was only weeks after it had re-opened that it was forced to shut, again.
The Hythe Pool team has confirmed today that direct debits starting from November have been cancelled until it re-opens.
A set date is not yet known.
The statement said: “The council wrote to Hythe Pool members shortly following the storm damage to the pool.
“The council is working closely with its insurers and contractors to ensure that any period of closure is as brief as possible.
“As you will expect there are longer lead in times for contractors and building materials at this time of year and as soon as we have definite dates for re-opening we will inform Hythe Pool customers.”
