WATERPARK plans for a former swimming pool site have taken another step forward.

Residents have got two weeks left to have their say on what features they would like at the former Splashland site at Stanborough Lakes.

Welwyn Hatfield councillors have already decided the site should be a wet-play area for all the family.

And developers Eibe and SSP Waterplay now want to know exactly what adults and children want.

Two questionnaires, available at www.welhat.gov.uk or in the council offices, need to be returned by Friday, June 6.

The site, which used to be home to a swimming pool with flumes and a sand area, closed down in 1999 as a result of land stabilisation issues.

It has remained derelict ever since.

A council spokeswoman said it was hoped work would start on site in the summer of 2009, with the park opening in 2010.

She said: "However, this is heavily dependent upon the outcome of a significant number of site surveys, the planning process and the views of a number of agencies including Hertfordshire Highways and the Environment Agency and the actual build time.

"Several of these variables cannot be fixed at this stage and this also assumes that the proposals are viable which the feasibility study is, of course, aimed at establishing."

The questionnaires can be found at www.welhat.gov.uk/leisureculture/splashlands
