COVID Implications on the leisure operating contract

To set out the contractual position and a range of potential options for consideration for the Leisure Management Contract

Decision type: Key

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Notice of proposed decision first published: 21/07/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
this is Covid-related and we did not have a clear understanding of the position until very recently - after taking external consultant and legal advice. The Governement only very recently announced the ability to reopen leisure facilities. Our contractor intends to reopen at least part of our leisure facilities from 25 July, and it is therefore necessary for the Council to make an urgent decision on a number of associated financial and contractual matters

Anticipated restriction: Fully exempt  - View reasons

Lead director: Executive Director - Commercialisation (S151)
