West Ham Park Sports Fees and Charges review 2019-20

Report of the Director of Open Spaces.

Minutes:

Members considered a report of the Director of Open Spaces regarding the West Ham Park Sports Fees and Charges Review 2019-20, and the following points were made.

 

·         The West Ham Park Manager noted that Newham had recently refurbished its tennis courts at Stratford, which had impacted on the usage of Park tennis courts.

 

·         The West Ham Park Manager noted that the proposals before Members included charge for household use of facilities, and that charges for football had been kept competitive to encourage greater use of the Park facilities.

 

·         In response to a question, the West Ham Park Manager agreed to review whether Cricket nets could be made available by the hour.

 

·         In response to a comment, the West Ham Park Manager agreed to review how Park staff could ensure individuals using an annual membership were the same individual who had purchased that membership.

 

·         In response to a question, the West Ham Park Manager noted that the Park’s football pitches were rotated to ensure they were not damaged through overuse. The pitches tended to be used by non-league sides, with league sides using Wanstead.

 

RESOLVED, that subject to the comments made by Members, the proposed schedule of charges for sports facilities in West Ham Park for the 2019/20 financial year be approved.
