Decision Upheld on Meden Sports Centre

Mansfield District Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment, Cllr Andrew Tristram, has today (Wednesday 19 April), upheld his decision to withdraw from the management contract at Meden Sports Centre.

There have been long-standing concerns over the condition of the building and despite an investment of over £500,000 since 2012, the facility is considered unsustainable for the future.

Martyn Saxton, the council's Director for Place and Wellbeing, said “Mansfield District Council has taken the difficult decision to withdraw from the ongoing management agreement at Meden Sports Centre. This is down to concerns over the condition of the building – over the past five years it has not been possible to find a sustainable solution to the asset management issues. We will now implement an exit plan and terminate our management agreement in April 2018.”

“Our understanding is that Nottinghamshire County Council will continue to work with Meden School to provide access to suitable Physical Education facilities and with local schools to make provision for school swimming.”

The decision also includes a further recommendation for the council to work with Mansfield District Leisure Trust to look into the possibility of providing a small health and fitness facility in Warsop.

Officers of the council will continue to work with Mansfield District Leisure Trust to implement the exit plan and help find alternative options for users of Meden Sports Centre.
