The spaces and equipment phase of this work will provide a facility to allow users to book and pay for rooms, sports pitches and other facilities.

We are combining our digital platform, payment solution, booking solution, and GOV.UK Notify to produce the various services needed to deliver this work. Starting with a single room in one library and one tennis court we will build a simple booking facility and test this with users.

When these services are live we will move on to more complex bookings for libraries, family hubs, our museum, and all-weather and grass sports pitches. The final phase of the work will see us provide a service to book a room at Shaw House, an Elizabethan mansion managed by the council.
