This report sets out the decision to include additional carbon reduction measures to the works to construct the new Rivermead Leisure Centre and new swimming pool at Palmer Park using £976,248 from approved funds allocated for low carbon capital investment works (energy efficiency and renewable energy installations) in the MTFS. The work is to install additional air source heat pumps (ASHPs) and solar panels to further improve the carbon savings for the sites.

It is the decision of the Executive Director for Economic Growth & Neighbourhood Services, in consultation with the Lead Councillor for Strategic Environment, Planning and Transport and the Lead Councillor for Health, Wellbeing and Sport, that £976,248 of approved low carbon capital funds are deployed to enable additional air source heat pumps and solar panels as part of the works to build the new Rivermead leisure centre and new swimming pool at Palmer Park Sports Stadium.

The existing contract including the annual revenue re-payment schedule with Greenwich Leisure will be updated to include these works to meet the agreed opening dates for the new facilities at these sites.
