Talacre Sports Centre NW5
Camden Council plans to outsource management of Talacre Community Sports Centre in Kentish Town to Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL).
The council believes this will enable savings to be made without reducing the service on offer, but trade unions warn that popular classes and courses will not be retained and that the council will lose its say in how the centre is run.
Talacre Community Sports Centre runs one of the country’s most successful children’s gymnastics classes.
GLL describes itself as a social enterprise and currently runs four leisure centres in Camden, with a management contract with Camden Council that runs to 2020.
