Item 7.1





Response of the Executive Member to Recommendations on Portishead Open Air Pool




Pools and Leisure Review


Following your consideration of this issue I have noted the recommendations of the panel.

As panel members you will be aware of the major review currently taking place of cultural services which includes both the contracted sports centres and the dual use sports centres controlled by the council.  This review also includes the Playhouse Theatre and the Museum service.  In part, this review covers the requests from the Panel contained in your recommendations.  However, the scale and complexity of this major review is such that it will not be possible to guarantee its conclusion in time to feed back to the panel in April.    Once the work is complete I will be happy to bring the conclusions to the Panel.
