To consider a refit of the Lords Meadow
The Cabinet had before it a * report of the Leisure Manager – Health and Fitness seeking approval from Cabinet to bring forward the refurbishment of Lords Meadow Leisure Centre Fitness Studio and undertake that work in the current financial year (FY18/19); the funding for this work having been programmed in the next financial year (FY19/20).
The Cabinet Member for Community Well-Being outlined the contents of the report stating that the investment in the Exe Valley Leisure Centre in the last financial year had delivered excellent results and that the focus was now on improving the facilities at the Lords Meadow Leisure Centre with investment into the fitness studio and therefore the Cabinet were being asked to consider an in-year virement of £185,000 to fund the refurbishment. The changes would be cosmetic with the installation of the very best matrix equipment and there would be no structural alterations to the building. If approved the scheme would be completed by 1 January 2019.
Members considered the scheme to be necessary and that it would be very well received.
RESOLVED that an in-year virement of £185,000 to fund the refurbishment of the fitness suite at Lords Meadow Leisure Centre be approved.
(Proposed by Cllr C R Slade and seconded by Cllr R J Chesterton)
