Dear Mr Stapleton, further to your request under the Freedom of
Information Act, on behalf of the Council, my response is below:

 

Regarding borrowing for the development of a new leisure centre, the
Council borrows from the Public Works Loans Board. The financing for this
project will be considered as part of the total financing required for the
Council’s overall capital programme.

 

There are no agreed plans at the moment for the Kingsway site. The
priority is to develop the new leisure facility at Moor Lane which will
then allow us to remove the old leisure centre building, thereby freeing
up further land for development. There are also tenants still in Broseley
House to consider.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Yours sincerely
