Nine more bids submitted to take over leisure centres (From The Northern Echo)

NINE more bids have been submitted to take over the running of six closure-threatened leisure centres.

Officials at Durham County Council said a detailed study would now be carried out on the strength of the 19 bids before any decision was made on the future of the centres.

The council, which is facing severe cuts in its Government grant, is considering closing centres at Ferryhill, Coxhoe, Sherburn, Pity Me, Ushaw Moor and Crook to save £1.3m a year.

The threat of closure provoked an outcry among users during a three-month consultation.

Several businesses and community groups have since drawn up plans to take over running the centres.
