East Lindsey District Council is to investigate alternative management and delivery options for its leisure facilities, cultural services and Embassy Theatre, in its continued quest for value for money for local residents.
The Council currently spends £4.24m each year in these areas of activity because it recognises the important contribution these services make to both the health of local people and the economy of the area.
The Council has the challenge of saving several millions of pounds in the next few years and is keen to explore all avenues to continue to maintain services whilst reducing the costs to local taxpayers.
Portfolio Holder for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “The Council is reviewing all services to look at how the savings needed can be delivered whilst protecting services to local people. Once the initial investigations have been completed, recommendations will be made which will enable all Councillors to debate the matter.”
