Long overdue refurbishment of the changing rooms is to be completed by the end of next March

The long-awaited upgrade to the changing rooms in Penarth Leisure Centre is due to be completed by the end of March 2019 – Vale councillors were told last night.

Vale of Glamorgan Councillors were told last night that the original procurement process using the Welsh Labour Government’s “Sell 2 Wales” website had not had “not resulted in an acceptable tender being received ”

The work had been out to tender a second time and a “successful tender has now been received” who it was hoped to sign up “in the very near future“.

Cllr Mark Wilson (Labour Stanwell) had asked for an update on the anticipated completion date for the work

Cllr Gordon Kemp who is in charge of health and leisure services

Cllr Gordon Kemp who is cabinet member for social care, health and leisure said the putative contractor had proposed alternative working methods for carrying out the contract which would enable the Penarth Leisure Centre to remain open throughout the process and that this would result in the work being completed more quickly.

Cllr Wilson asked whether Cllr Kemp would inform local councillors about when the work would take place, how long it would last and provide regular updates so that they could “scrutinise what is occurring”.

Cllr Kemp said the council was anticipating the works being completed by the end of March 2019 – two months later than originally planned.  If there was a further delay councillors would – he said – be notified.  However if there was no delay, the end of March 2019 would be the completion date.
