    To consider the attached report of the Director of Environment and Corporate Assets.

    Additional documents:


    The Director of Environment and Corporate Assets and the Director of Finance, Housing and Community gave a presentation to Members on the proposals for the new leisure centre.

    Members were advised that the Cabinet would be the decision maker for most decisions relating to the leisure centre with the exception of elements of the Medium Term Financial Plan and Treasury Management which would be the responsibility of the Council.

    The principles of the financing arrangements for the leisure centre were discussed as well as the choice of the proposed site at Whitfield and the facilities mix. It was noted that if a decision was taken to proceed with the spa option it would require a further report to Council to include it within the Medium Term Financial Plan.

    In addition to providing sufficient parking arrangements at the new leisure centre, the importance of providing improved public transport links so that people from Dover, Deal and the surrounding areas could use the new leisure centre was raised. It was noted that this would be a matter for the Cabinet.

    It was moved by Councillor T J Bartlett, duly seconded and

    RESOLVED:  That the budget and policy framework be amended to include the Dover Leisure Centre project in the capital programme.
