Leisure Centres across Central Bedfordshire saw another year of increased usage during 2017/18. While the usage figures reported appear to show a downturn in attendances, this is a result of Dunstable Leisure Centre being closed for refurbishment and therefore not being included in results. Central Bedfordshire Council is committed to increasing leisure facility usage across its multiple sites and aims to improve on the same period during the previous financial year.
Even with Dunstable Leisure Centre still closed for refurbishment, the leisure centre usage figure remains fairly steady. The result for July to September 2018/19 was 440,406, just 1,441 less than the same period in 2017/18.
