Online Swim Bookings/No Show Fines
1. After COVID arrived, and the enforced closure and reopening, Edinburgh Leisure introduced booked swimming sessions - where previously people could just turn up when the pool was available for swimming - with fines / payments being levied for customers / users missing such said bookings. 2. How many such fines / payments, for missed swimming bookings were levied during 2021? 3. When it was decided to introduce these swim sessions, and with them the fines / payments for missed bookings, how then were the customers / users informed of the changes? 4. Does Edinburgh Leisure have a written Policy and Procedure by which customers / users can appeal against such fines / payments? 4.1 If 'yes', how should this then be communicated to customers / users? 4.2 Also if 'yes', how many such appeals were successful? 4.3 If 'no' why not? And given Edinburgh Leisure does not have a Complaints Policy and Procedure ( as per FOI 00309) how are customers / users expected to dispute such fines / payments? 5. Does Edinburgh Leisure put details of missed swim session(s), plus fine(s) / payment(s) levies in print to the customer / user? If not, why not? 6. Where, and by whom, is the decision made that a swim session has been missed made? 7. Customers without access to a smart phone, laptop, or computer had to make bookings via a Leisure / Swim Centre booking machine, so why did not everyone of these machines issue a receipt when a swimming booking was made?
