Agenda item

Member Working Group for Leisure

To confirm the formation of, and seek volunteers for, a Member Working Group for Leisure. The purpose and scope of the Working Group are set out in the draft Terms of Reference.


The Deputy Leader of the Council introduced his item relating to the review of the leisure provision across the district. He informed the Committee that visits to all of the leisure centres would be carried out and that the input of local Councillors would be welcomed when considering the options for the specific leisure sites.


A Member Working Group for Leisure was being formed to help shape and develop the overall leisure review process, to allow a small group of Members to track progress and feed back to the relevant Overview and Scrutiny Committees as needed. Although the Terms of Reference stated that two Members of the Committee would be required, there were four members of the Committee who volunteered and the Deputy Leader agreed to amend the requirement to allow all four Members to join the Working Group. The Committee also suggested that it would be beneficial for a representative from the Finance Department be invited to join the group.


Action Point


Ø  Councillors Whittington, Dilks, Morgan and Adams to join the Member Working Group for Leisure.

Ø  An officer from the Finance Department to be invited to the meetings of the Member Working Group for Leisure to provide financial advice as needed.
