There is no requirement for external consultation on this report, in respect of the provision of leisure services. TUPE Staff consultations will take place, the Council will work with Celtic Leisure to ensure that all staff members within Celtic Leisure are kept updated on arrangements and the Council has sought to liaise with Celtic Leisure at all times to address any particular concerns raised, though to date these has been limited, with timescale being a key focus.
