Working with Alliance Leisure Services, we have created the UK Leisure Framework, which offers business solutions for major leisure projects including the design, refurbishment, construction and development of leisure centres, theatres, play facilities, recreation facilities and sports facilities across the UK public sector.
The UK Leisure Framework allows for the direct appointment of a partner (Alliance Leisure) for scoping, design, refurbishment, construction and development of leisure centres, theatres, play facilities, recreation facilities and sports facilities across the UK public sector. It also supports the marketing of these types of facilities.
The Framework was procured in accordance with EU Procurement Regulations by Denbighshire Leisure within Denbighshire County Council (DCC), and after an extensive tendering and evaluation process Alliance Leisure Services were appointed. The Framework is therefore owned by DCC but a management board comprising of both DCC Officers and Alliance Leisure personnel has been established to monitor and develop the Framework.
The Framework is available to all UK public sector organisations listed HERE. This also includes any Leisure Trusts and/or Mutual Arm’s length limited companies that are associated with any UK public sector Authorities, or any other Private Limited Companies that are operating leisure facilities on behalf of a UK Public Sector client organisation listed.
In addition to the listed Client Authorities, other public bodies may join, access and use the Framework from time to time subject to approval by the Framework Management.
The Framework allows Alliance Leisure to enter into direct relationships with organisations to scope, develop and deliver both physical leisure developments and cultural and marketing related services. Importantly, it does not commit the client into undertaking a development, but allows potential projects to be explored with these only coming to fruition should the affordability prove positive.
The Framework Term is available from February 2017 to January 2022.
“You have created a particularly good hybrid in Denbighshire, which captures the good social objectives of what municipal provision should be about, whilst delivering it in a way that is not very different to the approach taken by the private sector in terms of commerciality. This is not easily achieved and frankly, I do not see it often in either my day to day job, through my networks or in connection with my association with CIMSPA. I think that I would characterise what you do as measured entrepreneurship! This means that you are prepared to take calculated risks in pursuit of service improvement, and from what I have seen, it has been a success.”
