Freedom of Information Request

Leisure and Sport Community Assets

Received: 12 February 2021

I am currently conducting a scoping exercise for a PhD research project. Therefore, under the Freedom of Information Act, please provide me with a copy of the following:

* A list of facilities and spaces including: sport centres, leisure centres, swimming baths, gymnasiums, bowls greens, cricket greens, outdoor courts, and outdoor activity spaces, which have been transferred through a process of Community Asset Transfer and were previously owned by your local authority, during the last 25 years.

* If possible, please provide me with information concerning when the asset was transferred, the specific nature of the asset, the name and nature of the organisation who the asset was transferred to, the lease that the asset was transferred through, the length of the lease, if the recipients are still in ownership of the asset, and the contacts details of the recipients of the asset.

* Lastly, please can you confirm if transfers have occurred in the past 12 months.

I understand that under the Act I am entitled to a response within 20 working days of your receipt of this request. If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.

I would prefer to receive the information electronically.

If you require any clarification, I expect you to contact me to provide advice and assistance if you find any aspect of this FOI request problematic.
