Schedule of charges
Racking and other fees are set by the Trustees of GBL to meet current costs and make reasonable provision for future maintenance and development.
The total fee payable will depend on usage but the base rate for any service eg charge per racking unit, will be the same for each user.
Fees that are charged per use will be based on an estimated annual usage agreed between GBL and each user organisation. Each user organisation will be expected to co-operate with the Company to compile actual usage figures as required by the funding agreement with Sport England. The compiled usage figures will be used as the basis for the following year’s charges. If actual usage differs from estimated usage by more than 5% then, as appropriate, a rebate or a supplementary payment may be requested.
Fees for boat storage will be based on the number of ‘racking units’ that a boat occupies. The number of racking units charged for each type of boat has been determined by the amount of space each boat takes up when stored. The allocation of units per boat size is:
|Type of Boat||Internal racks||External racks|
|Rowing pair/double (2)||15||5|
|Rowing 1x (1)||10||3|
|Open Canadian canoe||3||1|
|Plastic single canoe||1.5||0.5|
|Trailers||No fee||No fee|
The fees due from 1/4/17 will be:
|Racking||£15+VAT per racking unit per year|
|Use of changing facilities||25p per person per day|
|Gym||50p per person per day|
|Visitors||£5+VAT per person per day|
|Exclusive use of meeting room||£5 per hour|
|Exclusive use of function room||£20 per hour|
|Exclusive use of whole site||£25 per hour|
|Exclusive use of whole site||£250 per day|
Changes to fees will be effective from 1 September each year. Users will be given 9 months’ notice of changes.
The fee structure will be reviewed in 2019 and periodically thereafter to ensure that costs are being shared fairly between users in the light of experience of running the facility.
