Leisure services review

Bracknell Forest Council needs to save £23.5m over the next 3 years and is reviewing how it provides all its services and this includes Leisure Services. A public meeting to brief customers on this review helped draw out the key points that customers wanted to understand and these are detailed below.

What is happening

  • in order to achieve some cost savings the council is exploring whether a third party operator is able to manage the operation of Bracknell Leisure Centre, Downshire Golf Complex and Coral Reef to similar standards as the council but at a lower cost to the local tax payer
  • the council will remain fully accountable for the services delivered
  • the intention is for customers to receive the same level of access and quality of service that they receive now, or better
  • any changes will not affect how customers benefit from the investment in Coral Reef
  • if agreed, a contract will be in place to make sure that any incoming operator delivers the level of service that the council requires and customers expect and deserve
  • the council anticipates customers will see improvements and further investments in the facilities in the coming years, which under the council would probably not be funded
  • vulnerable groups and key clubs and activities will be protected with an aim to increase participation and healthy lifestyles for our residents
  • staff will transfer to the new operator under existing terms and conditions if management of the service is outsourced
  • customers will be kept informed of what’s happening as the review progresses
  • the Council’s Executive agreed a procurement plan for this market testing exercise on 14 February 2017 with a decision in late summer/early autumn

What’s not happening

  • the council is not selling any of the leisure centres
  • the council will not lose control of pricing but will consider any proposed price changes by any operator, not to be unreasonably withheld
  • the council will not be controlling the operator; they will have considerable freedom to run the centres in the way that they wish providing that the required standards and specification are met but major structural changes will require Council approval
