Under Part I of the Local Government Act 1988 (competition), the management of sports and leisure facilities may be carried out by local authorities only if certain conditions are fulfilled. Regulation 3 of the Local Government Act 1988 (Defined Activities) (Competition) (England) Regulations 1990 provides that one of those conditions shall not be treated as fulfilled in respect of this type of work if the period included in the specification of the work, required to be made available in accordance with section 7(3)(b) of the Local Government Act 1988, is less than four years or exceeds six years. In these Regulations a period of two years is substituted for the four years which would otherwise be the period applicable (in respect of the management of sports and leisure facilities carried out by the Redbridge London Borough Council at the sites listed in regulation 2(3)) during the period beginning with the commencement of the Regulations and ending on 31st March 1998.
