Cornwall Leisure Centres petition prompts full vote

Councillor Robin Moorcroft started a petition in October calling on the Council’s Leader – Councillor Linda Taylor – to refer the decision on closing leisure centres in Cornwall (including Wadebridge, Launceston, Saltash and Falmouth) to a meaningful vote of all 87 Councillors at a full meeting of Cornwall Council.

The petition has reached over 5000 signatures which means the issue must be considered by the full council of 87 councillors of all political persuasions.

Cornwall Council  is actively considering not funding the four leisure centres, together with the hydrotherapy pool in St.Austell. All are at risk of closing permanently, as the council does not have a statutory duty to fund them and Better Leisure say they are struggling to keep open due to loss of revenue.
