2. QUALITY ACCREDITATION

With reference to Article 3 of the minute of meeting of this Committee of 20 January 1998, the Committee noted that validation assessments had been carried out in conjunction with "QUEST" at Lochside Leisure Centre, Forfar and Arbroath Sports Centre, Arbroath. The validation exercise in general had confirmed the self-assessments carried out by the Centre staff and would form the basis for future development leading to "QUEST" accreditation at all leisure facilities.

With reference to Article 16 of the minute of meeting of the Personnel and Property Services Committee of 17 March 1998, there was submitted Joint Report No 322/98 by the Contract Services Manager and the Director of Personnel advising on the current situation regarding the restructure of leisure management. The Report indicated that consultations had taken place with staff and unions regarding changes to the structure but that after considerable deliberations, the staff and unions had rejected the proposal. Accordingly, the existing structure would continue to operate.

The Committee agreed, for its interest, to note and approve the contents of the Report.
