16/07/2021 - CLOSURE OF EUROPA POOLS LEISURE POOL ref: 4881 Recommendations Approved
At the meeting of the Tourism, Communities, Culture & Leisure Committee (TCCL) on 16th June 2021 a decision was taken to reopen Europa Leisure Pool for the 2021 school summer holiday period 19/07/21– 05/09/21 (inclusive) subject to there being no covid restrictions imposed by the Government during that period.
Wirral continues to experience an increasing number of new cases of Covid19. Owing to the rapid increase in new infections, dominated by the Delta variant, Liverpool City Region was designated, by HM Government, as an area of Enhanced Response on 14th June 2021. The current rate of infection in Wirral is fourth highest in the Liverpool City Region and as at 14th July 2021, in the top 20 nationally. Further detail on Wirral infection rates is provided in section 3.5 of this report.
This report therefore recommends that the decision of the Tourism, Communities, Culture & Leisure Committee on 16 June 2021 is not implemented as the opening of this facility at the capacity required to ensure the protection of public health and financial viability would be unsustainable in light of these local conditions.
The provision of a Leisure Pool offer is a non-statutory function of the Council.
Decision Maker: Director of Neighbourhood Services
Decision published: 16/07/2021
Effective from: 16/07/2021
Not to reopen Europa Leisure Pool during the school summer holiday period from 19/07/21 - 5/9/21 and authorise the utilisation of the space within the facility for an alternative provision of sport and activity.
