“This council notes the closure of city council leisure and sports facilities following the collapse of Aspire Sports and Cultural Trust that operated GL1 Leisure Centre and the Oxstalls Tennis Centre on the council’s behalf.

This council agrees that the public and users of these sports facilities should not have to wait 12 months before they are reopened.

This council calls on the administration to reopen these facilities as early as possible using staff directly employed by the city council if necessary.”
