Previously the Council had advised that they could not provide numbers regarding the savings attributable to Moorways. In a further request they have supplied this breakdown which supports the numbers ( more or less) budgetted in the financial plan.
The plan showed £214k in 2016/17; £268k in 2017/18; £368k in 2018/19.
Due to the problems at Queen’s Street Bath then the savings in 2016/17 will be considerably less than £214k. How many of the ~20 staff are still employed is the subject of a future question. Perhaps one of the readers may know, and can comment.
All of the costs seem to be relevant to the closure of the pool, provided that all staff are specific to the running of the pool and therefore the immediate benefit of the closure is broadly correct.
What the calculation doesn’t include is the social cost of the closure, including the consequential financial effects of many of the elderly, disabled, and young users who stop swimming altogether. This should not have been ignored in the original calculation. Most organisations struggle to make decisions which involve effects beyond the immediate financial analysis – fine if you’re making widgets, but not entirely relevant for a Council.
