Cornwall Council launch consultation on leisure centres

Cornwall Council is calling on residents, community groups and organisations to have their say about how leisure services should be provided in Cornwall.

consultation launches today which sets out proposals aimed at providing residents with leisure facilities that are accessible, affordable and provide the best value for money, whilst recognising that the pandemic has made it difficult to operate some current services in Cornwall.

The council’s vision is for every resident to have access to a good quality, fit for purpose, and sustainable leisure offering that helps our communities stay healthy and active.

The majority of Cornwall’s leisure centres are currently run by the non-profit social enterprise GLL, which operates under the Better brand. GLL manages 13 leisure centres on behalf of Cornwall Council, but closures during lockdown periods and reduced visitor numbers have had a significant impact on its income over the last 18 months, creating losses of approximately £4.5m.
