The future of Leisure in our City

The future of Leisure in our City

The new Leisure Centre at Bar End is soon to open. Labour councillors would press to ensure that the charges are appropriate for local people. The present council has put forward significantly greater charges than at River Park.

This cannot be right. It’s two years since the contract with the new operator was agreed. We need to know what was in that contract. The fees for young people mustn’t discourage them from swimming. The access and car parking arrangements need careful monitoring to protect local residents.

Labour will press for a charter for children and young people at the forefront of all council decisions. The current pandemic has highlighted the needs of children and young people which must be met in all aspects of their lives. To encourage local people to be outdoors more in other parts of the city, we need to upgrade open spaces with toilets and improve playgrounds.
