To review progress during 2018/19 and to consider the plans for 2019


The Chief Officer (Housing and Assets) introduced a report to enable the Committee to review the progress of Holywell Leisure Centre Community Asset Transfer since establishment in April 2017.  He provided background information and context and advised that the report looked back on the last financial year, reviewed the current financial year’s business plan, and provided the business plan for 2019/20 for consideration. 


The Chief Officer reported on the main considerations as detailed in the report, and referred to the targets for 2018/19 and the business plan, appended to the report, which sets out the key priorities, action pan, and financial proposals up to 2020/21. 


Cllr David Wisinger expressed concerns around the cost for repair and maintenance works to be undertaken on the building.


During discussion Members commented on the revenue support provided by the Council to Holywell Leisure Centre.  Councillor Janet Axworthy proposed that the revenue support funding be provided beyond 2019/20 and potentially increased.  The proposal was seconded by Councillor Dave Mackie.  When put to the vote this was not carried.  The Leader of the Council said that whilst he acknowledged the support to provide future funding, Members needed to be mindful of making commitments without considering details of funding levels for the Council for 2020/21.


The Chairman expressed thanks on behalf of the Committee to the Trustees and management team for the progress and achievements gained and the ongoing success of Holywell Leisure Centre. 


The recommendation was proposed by Councillor Andy Dunbobbin and seconded by Councillor Dave Mackie. 




            That the Committee support and endorse the Business Plan for Holywell Leisure Centre.
