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. Racking and other fees are set by the Trustees of GBL to meet current costs and make reasonable provision for future maintenance and development.

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.

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.
