Council to ask Inverness Leisure and High Life Highland to amalgamate.
Members of The Highland Council’s Education, Children and Adult Services Committee have agreed that the Council should invite the Chief Executives of Inverness Leisure and High Life Highland to work together to agree a process leading to the amalgamation of the two organisations.
High Life Highland (HLH) delivers the Council’s Public Service Obligations for: Adult Learning; Archives; Arts; Leisure Facilities; Libraries; Museums; Outdoor Education; Sport; and Youth Work across the Highland area through a Service Delivery Contract with the Council.
Inverness Leisure (IL) is funded by the Council to provide leisure services in the Inverness area through a Service Level Agreement.
The Chief Executive of The Highland Council will now write to the Chief Executives of Inverness Leisure and High Life Highland asking them to work together to produce a rationalisation plan (by 30 September 2015) resulting in a single organisation to deliver the functions of both.
A further report will be brought back to the ECAS Committee or meeting of the Council for Members’ consideration.
