Request for emergency financial support to South Downs Leisure (SDL)Trust as a result of the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on leisure services in Worthing.
Before the Committee was a report by the Director for the Economy, copies of which had been circulated to all Members and a copy of which is attached to the signed copy of these minutes as Item 17.
The report set out the findings of recent work to understand the implications of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the delivery of leisure services in the Borough of Worthing and to make a decision around the level of financial support that was provided to the operator, South Downs Leisure Trust.
The Committee acknowledged the importance of the facilities to Worthing residents whilst noting that the consultant’s report and South Downs Leisure Trust Business Plan had been carefully considered and the finances scrutinised.
The recommendations were proposed by Councillor Val Turner, seconded by Councillor Elizabeth Sparkes and unanimously approved.
