If the answer to Q1 is yes please can you provide:
2: Who is/are the lead officer/s and can you provide their contact details.
3: Please can you provide the names of the development/s.
4: Please can you provide links to relevant Committee reports or documents that would provide information on scope, organisations involved, funding model and governance.
Much of the requested information is published on the Council's website and is therefore exempt under section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 'information otherwise accessible'. In order to be helpful we have provided answers to your questions below.
1: Yes there are 11 sport and leisure facilities operating in Moray. They all have mixed offerings of facility areas including swimming pools, games/sports halls, gyms, fitness rooms, weights rooms, exercise rooms, grass pitches and synthetic turf pitches. We have one facility with an indoor climbing wall. 1 of the 11 facilities is actually ran by an Arms Length External Organisation and they operate an ice rink within their facility.
Within the last 5yrs the new additions to our portfolio of facilities include a synthetic turf pitch, climbing wall and a sports block with a fitness room and games/sports hall (which was actually part of a new school build).
