This practical guide provides busy legal practitioners with the key information they need to achieve successful value for money leisure and culture procurements. It is intended for lawyers, commissioners and procurement officers and will also be of value to leisure professionals, accountants and anyone who has responsibility for these services in local government and more widely. The guide is intended to fill a gap in the market left by current guidance.

The book sets out a résumé of the current legal, procurement and commercial issues which local authorities and their providers should consider when procuring for the first time or re-procuring. It also includes the legal and related considerations which are relevant when managing existing relationships. Alternative models of service delivery for leisure and culture services are also considered in recognition of the number of existing historic projects together with multi-service externalisation projects as so many local authorities externalise a service which includes arts and outdoor leisure as well as their indoor leisure centres.

English and Welsh law are in scope. The book is up to date, includes reference to the government PPN guidance on COVID-19 and changes to post BREXIT procurement, together with the short, medium and longer term impact of COVID-19 on existing and new projects.
