Issue details

5-year concession contract for the delivery of a community leisure service based at Beechwood Recreation Centre

Beechwood Recreation Centre was built in the early 1970’s, being managed and operated by Wirral Council until 2009, when the Centre was jointly managed by the Community Service Section and Beechwood Joint Management Committee. The staff were still employed by Wirral Council. Beechwood Joint Management Committee withdrew their services in 2011 and, as a result, the Centre has been managed and operated as part of the Leisure Services estate since April 2013. Since April 2013 Wirral Council has been approached by a number of community groups and organisations interested in taking over the management and operation of the Centre.
