North Lincolnshire Council has had a fantastic response to its survey on the future of sport, leisure and cultural services for local people.
Over 1,000 residents gave their views and commented on how they would like local facilities to be managed and run.
Cllr John Briggs, cabinet member for asset and estate management, sport, leisure and culture said:
“I would like to thank everybody who took the time to complete the questionnaire. It really is gratifying that so many people have made their views known. The results will help to shape the future of sport, leisure and culture in North Lincolnshire.
We will look at all the information provided and the findings will be reported to cabinet members. As soon as we are in a position to do so a decision on the future will be made.”
These facilities benefit individuals and communities, for example, health improvement, better educational achievement and less antisocial behaviour.
The survey explored a number of options into how the council could manage them in ways that could better meet the needs of local communities.
The council already owns venues that are managed by others on behalf of the local community, such as, the Baths Hall and Baysgarth House Museum.
