Have your say on our leisure centres

Southend-on-Sea City Council is asking residents to share their thoughts on the leisure centres across the city as the council prepares to enter into a new contract with a leisure provider in 2025.

The council is after feedback on Belfairs Swim Centre, Chase Sports and Fitness Centre, Shoeburyness Leisure Centre, and Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre.

This initiative supports the council's commitment to promoting community health and wellbeing. By listening to residents' opinions, the council hopes to understand what people need and prefer, which will help improve leisure centre services in the future and feed into the procurement process for a new leisure contract. Further discussions and a paper discussing the contract options will go to cabinet in late June this year.

A council spokesman, said: “Your feedback is vital for the council to make decisions that will shape the future of our leisure centres. Whether you visit often or just every now and then, you can help the council ensure that its facilities meet everyone's needs and expectations as we work towards securing a new contract with a leisure operator in 2025 when the current contract expires.”

Residents are encouraged to share their thoughts on what matters most to them when using leisure centres, suggest features for improvement, and highlight areas needing attention.

The consultation period ends at 5pm on 12 June 2024. To participate and contribute your views, visit Your Say Southend.
