·         That serious consideration be given (in the light of the points made in the attached document) following the consultation period, to the case for the continuation of Tiddenfoot as a leisure facility with such management and organisational changes as may be necessary for this to be feasible

·         That, in the event that such continuation does not prove practical, serious consideration be given to the continuation (and improvement) of such facilities which may be able to continue in use for the community whether through transfer to third parties or agreement with Cedars Upper School to minimise the disbenefits to the local and surrounding community

·         That, in the event of a more general closure of Tiddenfoot as a Leisure Centre, a firm commitment be given to its continuation as a community hub with serious and urgent consideration being given to the functions it might perform under this heading, in consultation with the community.
