Introduction of the Swimming Passport

Reference: D1246

Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Housing, Health and Wellbeing

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

The report outlines the proposal for the introduction of the swimming passport for under 16s and over 65yr olds at Arnold, Calverton and Carlton Forum Leisure Centres.

Decision:

It is recommended that approval is given for the introduction of the swimming passport scheme at Arnold, Calverton and Carlton Forum Leisure Centres enabling free swimming sessions to residents who are either under 16yrs or over 65yrs as detailed in the report

Reasons for the decision:

To meet the labour manifesto pledge of providing free swimming opportunities to under 16yrs and over 65yr olds

Alternative options considered:

The swim sessions could be dedicated entirely to the under 16s and over 65yrs customers but this would increase the cost of providing this opportunity and would make it financially unviable
