Development and business planning – securing the long-term future of Dinton Activity Centre

Activity centre development planClient: Wokingham Borough Council

We prepared a business plan to help secure the long-term future of Dinton Activity Centre. As part of the development plan and business planning process we:

  • Carried out an assessment of the existing activity centre business
  • Carried out a module of staff consultation and consultation (including a workshop) with the Senior Management Team
  • Prepared a market assessment including demographic analysis
  • Carried out an options appraisal to establish the appropriate scale of any development of the offer at the activity centre
  • Prepared a financial model to establish the return on investment over a 10 year period, identifying gross and net profit forecasts
  • Set out and assessed the types and levels of partnership working available to deliver specific activities (including attracting third party investment)
  • Prepared a risk assessment

This lead to the production a robust development and business plan for the favoured development option for the activity centre.
