East Lindsey District Council is to investigate alternative management and delivery options for its leisure facilities in the district.
The council currently spends £4.24 million each year on leisure facilities, cultural services and the Embassy Theatre and says it “recognises the contribution they make to both the health of local people and the economy of the area.”
ELDC has the challenge of saving several millions of pounds in the next few years and is keen to explore all avenues to continue to maintain services whilst reducing the costs to local taxpayers.
Portfolio Holder for culture, leisure and tourism, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “The Council is reviewing all its services to look at how the savings needed can be delivered whilst protecting services to the local people.
“Once the initial investigations have been completed, recommendations will be made which will enable all Councillors to debate the matter.”
