UK Leisure Framework Update

As it completes its fourth year in operation, the UK’s first dedicated leisure development framework has continued to see phenomenal success.  With 41 projects completed and over £140m invested in local leisure facilities the UK Leisure Framework has delivered multiple relevant and cost-effective schemes for local authorities across the UK.

Jamie Groves, Managing Director at Denbighshire Leisure Ltd who manage the Framework comments, “The UK Leisure Framework was designed to help public sector bodies transform their leisure offer with successful and sustainable facilities.  Regardless of their size or cost, all framework projects are designed to impact local health and social outcomes by creating healthier communities, while also being economically sustainable to ensure local authorities achieve their income targets.”

In 2017 Alliance Leisure were appointed as leisure development partner to deliver all projects under the Framework.  “The UK public sector procurement process is one of the longest and most expensive in the EU. By making the process quicker and easier, the framework makes the development of public sector leisure facilities much more efficient and affordable. The focus on reducing costs and improving efficiencies means local authorities can dedicate more of their budget to the development.”, says Sarah Watts, CEO at Alliance Leisure.
