It was RESOLVED:-
1.1 That Cabinet approved use of £2.2m from the Growth and Efficiency Fund, together with £200,000 from existing leisure facility capital funds to undertake the proposed development and refurbishment works.
1.2 That Cabinet agreed to delegate to the Assistant Director – Environmental and Commercial Partnerships in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Communities, to undertake a process to achieve the most economically advantageous costs to enable the works to be undertaken.
1.3 That Cabinet recommends to Council on 27 February 2020 that the 2020/21 Capital Programme and the Joint Capital, Investment and Treasury Management Strategies 2020/21 be updated to reflect the financial implications set out in this report.
Reason for Decision: To meet the outcomes of the adopted Leisure, Sport and Physical Activity Strategy.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:
1.1 The development and refurbishment schemes have been proposed by Everyone Active, as part of the new lease agreement for leisure facilities in Mid Suffolk. The main proposal is to extend the existing fitness facility at MSLC together with a refurbishment proposal for the centre overall (approx. £2m).
1.2 The fitness proposal reflects one of the four options considered within the Leisure Facilities Strategy June 2017. This option is considered to be the priority in regard to the Council receiving the best outcomes for customers, both in terms of service provision and financial savings ie. reduced annual management fees currently payable to Everyone Active under the existing contractual arrangements.
