Hi Jim.

Interesting post. I concur with all of Stephen’s helpful comments. I would simply factor parish councils into the mix. If there is one in the area covering the sports centre it may be interested in running it as an asset. However, you could speak to Newport Pagnell Town Council (Bucks.) if this is the case as it has recently taken on an £11 million sports centre as a complex asset transfer from its principal local authority – http://www.newport-pagnell.org.uk/Newport-Pagnell-Town-Council/Contact_Us__and__Staff__1453.aspx .

This may not be relevant if there is not parish council in the same area but l;ong term you could of course consider setting one up.

Hope this helps a bit,
