All the leisure centre fitness gyms have been refurbished in April 2019 at a cost of £600,000 and now benefit from brand new state-of-the-art fitness equipment from Precor.
A collaborative partnership was formed under contract between Erewash Borough Council and Parkwood Leisure on 1 February 2019; sub contracting the day to day operation and management of the people and facilities to our partner Charity Legacy Leisure. The contract period is for 10 years with an option of a five-year extension.
Delivering value for money
This was a first-generation outsource with the leisure facilities previously managed directly in-house by the Council. The annual management fee throughout the life of the contract period is £316,366 p.a. providing the Council and local taxpayers a direct saving of operating the leisure facilities of over £729,312 p.a. compared to the 2017/18 outturn when operated directly by the Council.
