40 (12) LEISURE GRANT AID OCTOBER 2008 – The Service Director Asset Management and Culture submitted a report giving details of the different leisure grant aid schemes in existence, and seeking approval of applications for financial assistance.

Resolved – That the applications be dealt with as follows:

Trent Valley Junior Football Club To purchase generator and portable lighting facilities to enable training to take place during the winter months £700
Bottesford Town Council Regeneration of Greenacre Park Play Area including installation of new play equipment and Multi Use Games Area £30,000

The following item contains exempt information as defined in paragraph 3 of part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).

41 (13) GOLF BUSINESS PLAN 2008-2013 – The Service Director Asset Management and Culture submitted a report seeking approval for a business plan to support the ongoing provision of municipal golf covering the period 2008-2013, and to agree future management arrangements to support the delivery of the business plan.

The council directly operated two golf courses. The Normanby Hall Golf Course and Kingsway Golf Course. Both Courses were managed as part of the Normanby Hall Business Unit within the Cultural Services Division. Visitors to both courses had declined in recent years, as a result, income had fallen significantly below target.

A business plan had been developed to address these issues and improve future performance. The business plan proposed that the management of the golf function was placed within the Sports Facilities Division.

Resolved – (a) That the business plan to support the ongoing provision of municipal golf, covering the period 2008-2013 be approved, and (b) that the transfer of management responsibility for Normanby Hall and Kingsway golf courses and associated staff and facilities to the Sports Facilities Section in support of achieving the business plan outcomes, be approved.

Where there is no report this is because it is exempt, as it contains information which is considered to be of a confidential nature, as detailed in the Local Government (Access to Information) Act.
