17/11/2021 - Leisure and Entertainment Facility and Services Review ref: 2927    Item Called In

Current arrangements with Sheffield City Trust (SCT) for the management of the Major Sporting Facilities (MSF), which includes Ponds Forge, Hillsborough and the Arena come to an end in 2024 and therefore there is a need to review who and how the facilities are run.

 

Procurement and subsidy regulations do not allow the Council to extend the current relationship with SCT whereby they operate them for own purposes with funding from the Council, when the existing arrangements come to an end.

 

The facilities are also in need of significant investment if we want high quality facilities that are modern and welcoming, accessible and inclusive.

 

The Council has explored management and investment options that will enable it to achieve the most cost effective way to operate facilities whilst ensuring facilities are fit for purpose, affordable and sustainable and give us better control over the services that are delivered from the facilities than under the current arrangements.

 

The management options considered were to bring the services in-house and manage them from within the Council, establish a Local Authority Trading Company (LATC) to operate the services or appoint an external partner through a tender exercise.

 

Decision Maker: Co-operative Executive

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Co-operative Executive

Decision published: 23/11/2021

Effective from: 30/11/2021

Decision:

11.1

To agree a programme of investment for Leisure and Entertainment services and agree the preferred management option for the future operation of facilities.

 

 

11.2

RESOLVED: That Co-operative Executive:-

 

 

1.    Note the ending in 2024 of the arrangements with Sheffield City Trust around the Major Sporting Facilities (Arena, Ponds Forge and Hillsborough Leisure Centre);

 

2.    Approve the investment in our Leisure and Entertainment facilities to deliver a balanced and sustainable portfolio of facilities which support the needs of our communities alongside elite sport and events (Investment in the facilities);

 

3.    Note this gives an opportunity for the Council to review how leisure and entertainment services are delivered in Sheffield and approve the strategy of a Council commissioned (but market driven) approach to appointing an external partner, as outlined in this report (Who runs the facilities);

 

4.    Delegate authority to the Director of Culture in consultation with the Leader of the Council, the Director of Finance and Commercial Services and the Director of Legal and Governance to approve procurement strategies to deliver the strategy and to award any associated contracts;

 

5.    Note phased delivery of this strategy will be approved via the Council’s capital programme;

 

6.    Note the programme of public consultation to inform the investment in facilities at a local level;

 

7.    Note work will begin to address backlog maintenance issues at the following facilities:

 

a. Ponds Forge International Sports Centre

b. English Institute of Sport Sheffield (EISS)

c. Ice Sheffield

d. Heeley Pool and Gym

e. Beauchief, Birley and Tinsley Golf Courses

f. Sheffield Arena

g. Sheffield City Hall;

 

8.    Note that backlog maintenance will also be addressed at Upperthorpe Healthy Living Centre which is currently run by Zest;

 

9.    Note work will be undertaken on creating a lifecycle maintenance investment fund for Leisure and Entertainment facilities; and

 

10. Note the implications in (the closed) Appendix 1 and that further work will be done to inform how that can be progressed.

 

 

11.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

11.3.1

The council recognises that leisure provision will be critical post Covid-19, with many people requiring rehabilitation after suffering long-COVID, or diminished mental health caused by lockdown. The health and wellbeing of residents is a priority, and it is clear the services delivered by leisure play a vital role both now and in the future. It is therefore critical that a long-term management and investment strategy is put in place to secure the future of the leisure and entertainment portfolio.

 

 

11.3.2

It is expected that investment into new and improved facilities will help to attract and retain increased participation and usage of venues. Improved facilities will better meet customer expectations of a modern and welcoming leisure and entertainment offer. This will help to reduce barriers to participation and encourage more people to be more active, more often.

 

 

11.3.3

Investment in Leisure will improve financial viability and long-term sustainability of the service and ensure that facilities are modern and accessible. New facilities will also help to deliver against the Council’s commitment to the climate emergency by improving the environmental sustainability of facilities.

 

 

11.3.4

Investment in new facilities will also improve equality of access ensuring that facilities are designed to be fully accessible and inclusive.

 

 

11.3.5

There is a clear financial link between the amount of money the Council can invest and the operating model selected. The greater the income the operator generates, the more money the Council can safely invest. It is therefore critical that the Council selects the management option that provides the greatest level of income, and that the decision on the future management option is taken alongside the decision to invest.

 

 

11.3.6

The Leisure Review has shown that the external partner model is the most financially advantageous and returns the highest level of income. This is because an external partner is likely to benefit from existing regional management structures which means that central overhead cost such as senior management, central administration, HR and payroll attributed to the delivery of services will be lower. In addition, a specialist external partner is likely to be able to deliver economies of scale on procurement supplies and services and have stronger marketing expertise to generate sales and therefor increase income.

 

 

11.3.7

The external partner model also provides the greatest financial certainty as the least financial risk as a management fee would be set as part of the contract procurement and financial risk can be transferred to the external partner.

 

 

11.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

11.4.1

Alternative Management Model - The Council has reviewed three possible options for the future management of facilities, as described in 1.3. This included in house, a Local Authority Trading Company (LATC) and appointment of an external partner. The in house and LATC options were not selected as they are more expensive and present a greater level of financial uncertainty and risk to the Council. They would not allow for the level of investment needed for the Council to offer significantly improved leisure facilities.

 

 

11.4.2

Do Nothing - Doing nothing is not an option. The current arrangement with Sheffield City Trust come to an end in 2024 and the facilities themselves require significant investment just to remain open and functioning. Without investment facilities will continue to decline and eventually close.

17/11/2021 - Secondary Mainstream School Expansions ref: 2924    Recommendations Approved

Allocation of future Basic Need funding (secured from the DfE) combined with additional corporate resource support to address the increasing demand on secondary mainstream places in the southwest of the city.

Allocation required to support both permanent expansions in the South West and temporary expansions as required in other areas.

 

Decision Maker: Co-operative Executive

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Co-operative Executive

Decision published: 23/11/2021

Effective from: 30/11/2021

Decision:

8.1

The report outlined the pressures on secondary school places in the city, particularly in the southwest of the city, between now and the turn of the decade. The report also explained the capital funding available whilst recognising the LAs current financial position in relation to this. The purpose of the report was to seek Co-operative Executive approval for the use of Basic Need funding alongside corporate financial support to address the pressures on school places to deliver permanent and temporary secondary provision. This would include the potential expansion of two secondary schools in southwest of the city and temporary expansions in specific parts of the city

 

 

8.2

RESOLVED: That Co-operative Executive:-

 

 

1.    Approve the use of up to £1.5 million corporate resource to support the development of secondary school places;

 

2.    Delegate authority to the Chief Property Officer in consultation with the Director of Legal and Governance to proceed in the sale of caretaker properties to reimburse the corporate investment and the preparation of all necessary legal documentation; and

 

3.    Notes that allocation of future Basic Need funding, to support the development of permanent and temporary secondary provision in the city, will be approved via the Capital Approvals Process.

 

 

8.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

8.3.1

The preferred option is to:

 

I.               Approve the use of up to £1.5 million corporate resource to support the development of secondary school places

II.             II. Delegate authority to the Chief Property Officer in consultation with the Director of Legal and Governance to proceed in the sale of caretaker properties to reimburse the corporate investment and the preparation of all necessary legal documentation.

III.            Notes that allocation of future Basic Need funding, to support the development of permanent and temporary secondary provision in the city, will be approved via the Capital Approvals Process.

 

 

8.3.2

This option has been chosen because it helps ensure that the LAs statutory duties relating to mainstream and SEND place are met, improve outcomes for pupils in the southwest of the city and also the potential to recoup funds through the sale of caretaker properties across the city.

 

 

8.3.3

The intended outcomes are:

 · Development of permanent and temporary secondary provision in the city by utilising future Basic Need funding to meet statutory duties

 · Supporting the SEND strategy across the city

 · Reimburse the corporate investment through the sale of caretaker properties

 

8.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

8.4.1

Do nothing - This option has been ruled out as the LA would be in breach of its statutory duties under the Education Act to ensure sufficient school places, promote parental choice, diversity and fair access.

 

 

8.4.2

SW schools offer places above current admission numbers - This will involve negotiating with SW schools to accommodate the shortfall of places. Schools may be provided with Growth Funding as they have agreed to offer above current admission numbers on a temporary basis to provide a flexible solution that meets the Year 7 demand in the short term. This may reduce the threat of overcapacity in later years towards end of the decade also. However, SW schools will not be able to absorb the increasing demand over the next decade within existing accommodation as they are already near full capacity due to compounding effect of offering places above PAN the past few years. Health & Safety concerns around overall building capacity – corridor space etc have also been highlighted to the LA. There is a high risk that the LA will be unable to fulfil its statutory duties if the required places are not offered by the SW schools.

 

 

8.4.3

City wide allocation - This would involve allocating pupils who are unable to obtain a place at a local school to travel outside of their local area/catchment to access a place in other parts of the city where places are available. This would keep a tight system as city moves into a surplus in future years and reduces need to invest substantial capital funding. However, this could have a disproportionate impact on families. SW schools will have a less balanced socio-economic intake as children from deprived inner-city areas in the SW may miss out on admission to SW schools. This risks significant appeals from parents and puts pressure on schools outside of SW. If parents are successful on appeal, SW schools risk unplanned numbers through this process and have a further compounding effect on the overall capacity of the school. This would also have a greater level of impact on transport, impact on environment, cost for LA to transport these pupils out of area and cost to parents.

17/11/2021 - School Kitchen Equipment, Service and Maintenance Contract Re-tender ref: 2923    Recommendations Approved

Permission required to re-tender the School Kitchen Equipment, Service and Maintenance Contract on behalf of 91 schools who are participating in the School Catering Contract 2021-2025.

 

The current contract arrangements end on the 31st March 2022 and another contract needs to be in place by Monday 4th April 2022 when schools return after the Easter break.

 

 

Decision Maker: Co-operative Executive

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Co-operative Executive

Decision published: 23/11/2021

Effective from: 30/11/2021

Decision:

7.1

The report sought approval to procure a new School Kitchen Equipment Service & Maintenance Contract from 4th April 2022 for 3 years plus 4 months, to 31st July 2025 with an option to extend for two further periods of 12 months each. The council will enter into the new contract to support the School Catering Contract and those schools that participate in it. All costs are charged back to schools as part of a traded subscription service.

 

 

7.2

RESOLVED: That Co-operative Executive:-

 

 

1.    Approves the procurement for re-tendering the School Kitchen Equipment Service & Maintenance Contracts from 4th April 2022 to 31st July 2025 as outlined in this report with an option to extend for two further periods of 12 months each;

 

2. Approves the award of the contracts to the most economically advantageous tenderers; and

 

3. Delegates authority to the Executive Director of People Services in consultation with Co-operative Executive Member for Education, Children and Families, the Director of Finance and Commercial Services and the Director of Legal and Governance, to take all other necessary steps not covered by existing delegations to achieve the outcomes outlined in the report.

 

 

7.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

7.3.1

By procuring and managing Kitchen Equipment Service and Maintenance directly with the specialist commercial kitchen industry, the council has better control, operationally and financially. Although the premises are managed by the schools, and in the case of academies, owned in entirety, schools understand the need to keep the two elements of catering and equipment safety running in close harmony. It makes for safer premises and a safer catering service, while ever the school opts to participate in the School Catering Contract. This arrangement has always worked well in the past and in consulting with schools, this element of the offer was a major consideration when electing to join the School Catering Contract

 

 

7.3.2

With this contractual arrangement, schools can then focus on teaching and learning and not become involved in kitchen premises issues. The on-site catering teams have instant access to specialist and accredited kitchen maintenance contractors, and repairs, maintenance and replacements are managed smoothly. This keeps all school kitchens in operation during term time providing hot lunches for thousands of pupils every day, as well as swift action when problems occur.

 

 

7.3.3

As a direct result of letting this contract, other SCC corporate buildings, community buildings and other non-school sites can have their kitchen premises serviced by agreement.

 

7.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

7.4.1

Including Kitchen Equipment contracts in the School Catering Contract obligations During the first School Catering Contract with the private sector (2001 to 2006), it was decided to make kitchen maintenance part of the obligations of the catering supplier. It was a poor decision as it led to repairs being delayed or postponed and replacement equipment put on hold for lengthy periods. This element of the work was an area where funds could be saved, whereas covering labour and food costs were essential, so repair to and replacement of equipment was often curtailed. It is also not the area of skill for education catering suppliers and the work was subcontracted out by the catering contractor at the outset of the contract. The council had little or no control over decisions made and therefore were at risk if site safety became compromised through accidents with equipment or lack of a robust servicing regime. When the contract ended, and an inventory was carried out, extra funds were needed to bring sites back up to a proper operating level, ready for the next education catering supplier.

 

 

7.4.2

To Not Provide the Kitchen Equipment element for schools The Do Nothing Option Part of the offer to Headteachers when catering was outsourced was that they had a full ‘buy back’ option available to them as they did not wish to deal with equipment issues or kitchen safety, alongside managing a food service. It also makes the catering operation very difficult to manage if an essential part of that function is dependant on a decision by a Headteacher to spend resources on repairing or replacing equipment. Site safety would in many cases be compromised and some services temporarily halted while decisions to release funds for essential maintenance were confirmed. The caterer would then not be able to fulfil their contractual duties. Schools would have to make their own arrangements for kitchen maintenance and the council would have to navigate through many different arrangements with individual school staff to ensure safety was not compromised. Headteachers agreed to sign up for a catering offer that has a ‘whole kitchen’ approach, with all the responsibility for the service managed by skilled and knowledgeable contractors, overseen by the council’s School Food Team. To not do this would mean informing Heads that they would need to find a solution themselves by April 2022 which would create a problem for schools not used to managing this element of the service.
