Kidsgrove Sports Centre (exemption paragraph 3)

(exemption paragraph 3)

Minutes:

A report was submitted proposing a conditional one-off contribution towards the cost of repair of Kidsgrove Sports Centre.  A Kidsgrove Community Interest Organisation (CIO) had been formed with the aim of re-establishing the use of the Centre initially as a ‘dry’ sports facility. To do so financial support was sought from the County Council and Newcastle under Lyme Borough Council to meet the estimated cost of refurbishing the building. 

 

Members requested information on the estimated value of the Centre and adjoining car park and the County Councils current and future liabilities in relation to the Centre.

 

The Local Member for the Talke and Red Street had submitted representations welcoming the proposed one-off contribution but expressing disappointment at the timing of the County Council’s involvement and consequent loss in recent years of sporting facilities for the Kidsgrove community.

 

 RESOLVED – That consideration of the report be deferred pending clarification of the County Councils on-going liabilities in relation to the Centre now and in the future.
