3 WHAT’S IT ABOUT? Finding money from existing budgets to meet need to spend on: - planned maintenance of Leisure, Museums and Arts buildings - renewal of fixtures and fittings - parks/open spaces infrastructure - playgrounds Cultural Services comprises: - Leisure, Museums and Arts - Parks and Open Spaces

4 BACKGROUND Best Value Review of Cultural Services 2003: £8.7m (net) investment needed over 10 years 3-year cashable efficiency targets set by Government Comprehensive Spending Review Cash efficiency targets required by annual Council budget process Additional target of £200,000 per annum savings set by Chief Executive from 2008/09

5 OBJECTIVES Meet 10-year spending needs by: - reallocating resources within existing budgets - generating additional income Provide sustainable funding for spending needs beyond 10 years

6 OUTCOME OF REVIEW Backlog could be reduced: £8.7million £1.4million But risk of savings having to be applied to meet General Fund cash efficiency demands

7 APPROACH Officer review group Rigorous reassessment of spending needs - focus on essential, not desirable, work Protect existing facilities and services Review Management structures Engage Managers in process: - set clear objectives - use their first-hand knowledge of budgets - imaginative approach to trading operations (e.g Turkish Baths) Temporary post of Business Review Manager to work with Operations Managers (support, challenge, generate ideas)

8 COMPARISON OF NET SPENDING BACKLOGS : £8.7m 2007: £4m Reductions due to: - work completed (Nidderdale Pool/Turkish Baths) - concentration on essential, not desirable, works - playground inspections - ongoing facilities inspections - savings/capital receipts beginning to feed into Cultural Services Reserve (or “Leisure Fund”)
