Quote:On 7 July 2011 the Chair of Overview & Scrutiny Committee - Councillor Cathy Bowman - and three members of the committee (Councillors Eckersley, Hubber and Noakes) requested a call-in of the decision on the following grounds:
* Inadequate justification of value-for-money and compliance with the MTRS by virtue of it being a non-competitive contract award.
* Lack of clarity re. relative cost/benefit analysis of multi-purpose sports hall v cafe provision. (England Squash & Raquetball projects build cost per squash court to be £40k and annual return to be circa £12k. Where are the projections - in terms of build costs and return - for a cafe and/or a creche?).
* No analysis of impact of decision to jettision squash courts and sports hall on a key strategic aim of the Council's Sport and Physical Activity Strategy, namely "Improving access and choice for the whole population".
