Tonight a discussion on the rebuilding of Sparkhill Pool and Fitness Centre will take place at the Hall Green Constituency Committee. We would encourage all regular swimmers and gym users to attend to ensure that their views are taken into account at what could be a very important meeting in deciding who rebuilds, finances and manages the new facility.
The procurement will be presented in full at this meeting. Amongst the options is Option 4: Design, build, operate and maintain by an external contractor. This clearly has ramifications for the way our leisure services are funded and managed. Both the Sparkhill Baths group and FoMRB have major misgivings about the role of the private sector in the city’s leisure services.
The meeting details are:
Venue: Kings Heath Primary School, Valentine Road, Kings Heath, Birmingham B14
Date and Time: Tuesday 28th June, 7pm
