The fate of earthquake-hit Centennial Pool is still up in the air, with supporters calling for answers about the facility's future.

The pool and recreation centre sits within the green frame in the Government's central city blueprint, and has been earmarked as a children's playground.

Christchurch City councillors had been investigating whether the pool could be temporarily repaired, but put the plans on hold last month until they could speak to Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee.

Save Centennial spokeswoman Simone Pearson said she was frustrated about the lack of progess following months of discussions with the council.

"We've gone through all the hoops, all the processes, we've tried to present our side clearly and accurately, so why can't they just make a decision?"

Pearson said the pool would "enhance" the central city frame, and could combine well with the proposed playground.
