Shareholders at Calne Leisure Centre have given their backing to a proposal to transfer the facility to Wiltshire Council management.
Calne Leisure Centre has been an important facility for the people of the town since 1976, and since 2008 has been run by an independent not-for-profit community venture. Now the board will handover the lease to Wiltshire Council, which will allow capital investment in leisure facilities in Calne as part of the council’s campus project.
The council will take over the future management of the centre, with all staff members transferring their employment to the local authority.
Conservative CllrJonathon Seed, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for campuses and leisure, said: “This decision will mean that the people of the Calne community area can benefit from significant Wiltshire Council investment in their leisure facilities as part of the council’s innovative campus programme.”
Wiltshire Council is investing nearly £80 million in local communities to provide improved facilities and services across the county. Communities will enjoy modern, state-of-the-art facilities for years to come as more than half of the campus programme is delivered by 2017.
