Telford & Wrekin Council plans to build a new £8million pool in Dawley to help celebrate the achievements of its most famous son, Captain Matthew Webb.
Captain Webb was the first person to swim the channel in 1875, and the new pool would be open to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his efforts in 2025.
Work on the project could start late next year.
The investment from Telford & Wrekin Council is in addition to a wider £1million into leisure and activities to support the borough to recover from the covid pandemic.
