Notes from the Pools on the Park Liaison Group meetings:

User Group representation nominations

To assist the Council in ensuring it is meeting the needs of its users, there has been a User Group in existence for many years. Following a review of this group, it has been decided to revisit its membership and as a result, we will be holding elections in due course to fill a number of user representative positions.

The group will be made up of:

  • Cabinet Member with responsibility for sports
  • Head of Culture (chair)
  • Sports Service Manager
  • Pools on the Park Centre Manager
  • Five user representatives

Please note Ward Councillors will also be invited to attend. 

Main purpose of the User Group

The main purpose of the group will be to:

  1. Provide a forum for update and discussion about operational matters at Pools on the Park
  2. Act as a consultative group for any major service changes, and to advise on levels of consultation with the wider user body on specific proposals

The User Group is not a decision making group, but may make recommendations for consideration by the Council.

Areas represented by the User Group

The user representatives will be sought to ensure a representative cross section of user types. Specifically, regular users will be sought for each of the following areas:

  • Swimming Pool user
  • Group Exercise user
  • Fitness Suite user
  • Swim School user (Parent/Guardian)
  • Swimming club member

Each of the five user representatives will be nominated and elected by users of the service and will serve a term of two years.
