Additional Information: Not currently requested for pre-scrutiny.

Background Information: The Council agreed to enter into a contract with Storeys Field Centre Trust (SFCT) to operate Storeys Field Community Centre, but this was never intended to be a long-term arrangement for either party. An initial 5 year contract for services was agreed, and this was then extended for 18 months in October 2021 and is now due to end 31st Dec 2022. However, Storeys Field Centre Trust (SFCT) has requested provision for a further extension to enable sufficient time to implement and complete the successful transfer of services and staff to a new service provider. The Council will continue to work with SFCT to complete the transfer by the 31st Dec 2022, but should there be any complexities or delays, a decision is required to extend the contract for 3 months until 31st March 2023, to provide additional time if it is required.
