Minutes:

32.1 The Chair invited the Contracts and Business Manager (Mark Croston) to introduce the report.

 

32.2 The Contracts and Business Manager introduced the report starting on page 421 of the agenda.

 

32.3 Councillor Simson raised that the restoration project had her full support, and was keen to keep informed about the progress.

 

32.4 The Chair noted that there was a Labour Group amendment and invited Councillor Childs to move the amendment.

 

32.5 Councillor Childs moved the amendment on behalf of the Labour Group, which was jointly seconded by Councillors Grimshaw and Evans.

 

32.6 Councillor Simson was informed that free swimming budget is funded by Public Health, however the budget is currently overcommitted, and conversations would have to take place with Saltdean Lido regarding the impact on the Community Interest Company.

 

32.7 Councillor Grimshaw raised that having children swim for free doesn’t lose Saltdean Lido any money. The Assistant Director Culture Tourism and Sport (Donna Chisholm) responded that if the Lido is full of paying customers, having free swimming may interfere.

 

32.8 Councillor Littman raised that the amendment is only asking for officers to look at the options for free swimming, and children in the East of the City should have the option to swim for free.

 

32.9 Councillor Simson raised that other swimming developments will be developed in the city, and free swimming should extend to those going forward.

 

RESOLVED: That the Committee:
