In Summary
Manly Andrew ‘Boy’ Charlton Aquatic Centre opened to the community on Saturday 13 August, 2016 with the intent of providing community access to sport and recreational facilities. The Fitness Centre membership provides access to all pools, spa, sauna, gymnasium and fitness classes. During public exhibition of the draft Manly Andrew ‘Boy’ Charlton Aquatic Centre fees and charges for 2016/17, a number of submissions were lodged by community members concerned with the proposed fees and charges for Fitness Centre memberships. These submissions were responded to within the consultation processes of the former Manly Council. The fees were adopted as a trial introductory offer with the intention of reviewing after three months.

Northern Beaches Council Aquatic Services has undertaken a review of the Fitness Centre membership pricing including the introductory offer currently available until 31 January, 2017. This review has concluded that current fees do not represent value and are not market competitive when benchmarked against comparable facilities. This has resulted in a low uptake of memberships and the Fitness Centre being under-utilised by community members.

Council is now proposing to amend the membership fees.

All Fees and Charges Exhibitions for 16-17 are completed.
