A temporary health centre is also located on the site adjacent to the leisure centre.
The council leases the land from the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation (CISWO) on a lease that expires in 2122. Sport England provided a grant of 2 500 000 GBP when the centre was built.
Inspire:Fitness currently has 2,200 members, of which 1,200 are monthly direct debit members.

Evolve:Fitness boasts around 750 members of which 500 are direct debit members.
The wet side changing facilities and reception were refurbished in 2013 with funding from Sport England, the grant agreement of which requires the delivery of a swimming development plan.
The council has an agreement to operate the leisure centre with the school and the county council and is currently re-negotiating the joint use agreement.

The Council will retain responsibility for the maintenance of the structure of the facilities; the contractor will be responsible for all other elements of maintenance.
Sports Development — The council employs a small team in its sports development section. The team focuses on managing the externally funded Positive Futures (which engages young people most likely to get involved with risk taking behaviour) and Sportivate (which is engaging with the ‘semi-sporty’ young people) programmes; working with schools to promote Level 2 and Level 3 games; working with clubs to develop their own facilities and programmes, and working with disability groups to promote their greater participation in sport and physical activity.
Sport and Physical activity in Parks — In its parks in Lichfield and Burntwood, the council provides sports facilities including grass football pitches, bowling greens, courts for tennis and netball, and a par-3 golf course, and provides additional opportunities for activity including cycling and walking through its park ranger service. The parks also host a number of play facilities.
