Wokingham Borough Council plan to energise Bulmershe Leisure Centre0
Sporting facilities at Bulmershe Leisure Centre could be energised and modernised for people in Woodley as part of plans due to be considered by Wokingham Borough Council’s decision-making executive, on January 30.
Executive members will discuss whether C-Salt/Leisure Connection should take over the running of the leisure centre from Woodley Town Council from this April or a date soon after, subject to negotiations.
Once transferred, Bulmershe could also benefit from the new borough leisure facilities strategy, currently being drawn up, which will look at different options to modernise the leisure centre.
C-Salt and the town council both support the management transfer in principle. Negotiations between the town and borough council during the next few months would focus on ensuring the building and its facilities are fit for purpose until any modernisation works could start.
The leisure centre is owned by the borough council, and has been operated under lease by Woodley Town Council since 1995.
