This report advises the Committee of a notice of call-in received from seven Members of the Council of the Cabinet decisions relating to Splashes Leisure Centre.


The Chairman is asked to add this item to the Agenda so it can be considered at this meeting as a matter of urgency as permitted under section 100B of the Local Government Act 1972. This will enable the Committee to consider the call in of the Cabinet’s decisions earlier this week (which was after the publication of the main Agenda for this meeting) at the earliest opportunity, noting that the next scheduled meeting of this Committee will not take place until 12 August 2021. The decisions taken by the Cabinet on Splashes cannot be implemented whilst the consideration of the call-in remains outstanding.
