The Director of Community Services submitted a report outlining a proposed opportunity to hire the community room at the RV3G together with some daytime pitch use for the purposes of delivering a BTEC sports course for local young people in Ribble Valley.
The community room had been equipped for education use and more than one provider had come forward expressing an interest in using the facility to establish a course from. The Council would need to go through a formal procurement process to select a suitable operator. This use would not impact on the normal evening and weekend use and school bookings and competitions would still be accommodated.
RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
1. Note the report and agree in principle the use of the facility during term time for education use; and
2. Ask the Director of Community Services to procure and agree terms with a provider for a BTEC course.
