Needs Assessment for Indoor/Outdoor Sports Facilities in South Somerset

At its meeting on 10 January 2019, South Somerset Council's District Executive discussed exploring options for its future leisure provision and agreed to:
  • note and comment on the emerging issues from the draft Needs Assessment for Indoor and Outdoor Sports Facilities following a final report by .Knight Kavanagh & Page Ltd which covers sports centres, swimming pools, community halls and other communal facilities.
  • encourage Members to attend the upcoming workshop on 24 January 2019 at 5.00pm to share their reactions and to participate in a prioritisation exercise.
in order ro update Members on the Needs Assessment for Indoor/Outdoor Sports Facilities in South Somerset before the development and adoption of a new strategy for sports facilities.

Lynda Pincombe, the council's specialist in strategic planning, said: "It is recommended that we commission a feasibility study to determine how the availability of water space can be increased in the area. This should assess and take account of the business care for a five-lane, 25m swimming pool in Chard.

"It should also look at the potential refurbishment or extension of Goldenstones Leisure Centre (ie whether it is more cost-effective to build a new pool or to increase the size of the current pool(s)..

"We should explore potential investment in the Crewkerne Aqua Centre to alter and improve the learning pool, and consider whether and how increased use can be made of swimming pools at independent schools and at facilities located just outside of the district."
