A local Council wanted to offload a loss making Leisure Centre to the community so that Grants could be obtained by a Trust organisation set up to run it. Bob Shepherd Associates advised the supporters group on setting up a Company limited by Guarantee and ran several short workshop presentations to include everyone to the Business Planning. A substantial business plan was produced that incorporated all the functions of the Leisure Centre, developed some corporate training, some Special Events, some links with Sporting Associations and produced a recommended cash flow that would save £100k per year. Additionally we went with the Trustees to a number of meetings to the Council to argue the case. The plan subsequently formed the core of a feasibility study.
