Overview

Proposed Amendment to Leisure Pricing Policy (Free Access for users 65 years +)

As part of its Statutory Equality Duties under Section 75 and Schedule 9 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998, Derry City and Strabane District Council is carrying out an equality impact assessment on the following draft policy and would invite you to take part in our consultation process.

Why your views matter

Council recognises and welcomes the increased usage of Council leisure facilities by the over 65s. Many of these users have to regularly pay for transport to these leisure facilities which in many cases creates financial hardship. Therefore, in order to further encourage active lifestyles for our older citizens this Council will bring a report to the Health and Community Committee with a view to waiving costs for over 65s to use Council leisure facilities.

There are three documents included below that may assist you when giving your views:
