St Crispins leisure centre future

We the undersigned petition Wokingham Borough Council to Debate the future of this Sports centre in an open and transparent manner (Nolan principles) in a FULL Council session outlining: 1/. what the business case is 2/. on what facts the decision is being based and 3/. what discussions have already been held on disposal 4/. stop stonewalling requests for information

The building is well used (over 100k throughput pa) and has a 20 year life (both statistics source WBC). NB the throughput figure understates user visits.

The results of WBC 'consultation' on the future of the centre have not been published and many think the questionnaire was skewed - effectively a 'sham' process.

WBC also refuse to answer Freedom of Information requests regarding disposal of the centre, raising suspicion that a deal has already been done.

It appear the WBC Exec Committee will decide (or indeed already has decided) the centre's fate - meaning that it will not be debated by the full Council despite the importance of the issue to resident users of the centre.

Why the need for secrecy?
