13 Future Management Options for Broughton and Brooklands Pavilions Option 1 – Sell the Freehold MKC benefit from a capital receipt No ongoing financial contribution to the facility No MKC controls on price, performance, programming Only restrictive covenant to keep facility open Attempt to set up local community steering group could deter investors Operator would have equity to invest - controls on use will deter investors If operator failed facility cannot be taken back by MKC 13

14 Future Management Options for Broughton and Brooklands Pavilions Option 2 – Community Asset Transfer Competitive process - zero subsidy for MKC Final decisions on transfer done through open and transparent process Controls on price, performance, programming devolved Restrictive covenant to keep facility open Locally controlled; local community involvement with facility management Take facility back if risk of failing, i.e. breach of covenant or building closed 14

16 Future Management Options for Broughton and Brooklands Pavilions Option 3 - continued Ability to inflict financial penalties / terminate arrangement Objectives to meet within the Sports & Active Communities Strategy Core opening hours stipulated Inclusive use of facilities – balanced programme Protection of current user groups, prices, times and costs Opportunities for capital investment working in partnership This is the preferred option (Officers and Administration) 16
