Basildon District Council

Providing leisure and financial advice

Our team worked with Basildon District Council and Basildon Renaissance Partnership providing leisure and financial advice for the procurement of a Design, Build, Operate and Maintain Contract for Basildon Sporting Village, utilising the competitive dialogue process. The sporting hub includes a regional Gymnastics Centre, 50m pool, 8 court sports hall, athletics track, third generation synthetic turf pitch and community facilities that were opened in April 2011.


The successful operator was also required to provide interim management of existing facilities prior to demolition following the opening of the Sporting Village. Up-front capital funding was via a combination of grant funding and the development of enabling sites. This was the first leisure procurement project to appoint a Developer-led consortia and new approach to funding.


The project involved extensive consultation with key stakeholders to ensure that the contract documentation meets the needs of the wide spectrum of users that the Council is seeking to attract to the facility and ensure that key outcomes are achieved. 



The sporting village provides high quality facilities and activities for a wide spectrum of users, from local community groups through to elite athletes, and will act as a catalyst in regenerating a significant site in the town centre.
