    Due to significant health and safety concerns, the Deepings Leisure Centre has been temporarily closed since July 2021. At an extraordinary meeting of Council on 2 September 2021, it was agreed that options to provide leisure in the Deepings area would be assessed at a joint meeting of Culture and Visitor Economy and Finance, Economic Development and Corporate Services Overview and Scrutiny Committees. It was agreed these two Committees would jointly make a recommendation on the preferred option to Cabinet, prior to consideration by Council.


    This item and the attached report provides Members with an opportunity to carryout this decision of Council. In order to facilitate discussion and debate of this item as efficiently as possible, it is proposed that consideration of the report takes place as follows:


    (a)           Presentation of the report by the Cabinet Member for Leisure and Officers


    (b)           Consideration of background information on the Deepings Leisure Centre


    (c)           Consideration of feasibility work undertaken for a new Leisure Centre


    (d)           Consideration of leasing arrangements


    (e)           Consideration of refurbishment options in respect of the existing Leisure Centre


    (f)             Consideration of the project risks and opportunities


    (g)           Consideration of the timeline


    (h)           Consideration of recommendations to Cabinet


    Exclusion of Public and Press


    Some of the appendices to the report contain information which is exempt from publication. In addition, exempt information not for publication may be disclosed as a result of considering the report at the various stages outlined at (a) to (h) above. The press and public may therefore be excluded during discussion of this agenda item under paragraphs 1 and 2 of Schedule 12A of the Local government Act 1972 (as amended) at the relevant stage of the discussion and debate.
