The Pinewood Centre is owned by Wokingham Borough Council and sublet to Wokingham Without Parish Council. The parish council in turn sub-lets various of the buildings and areas of land to a whole range of community clubs and societies.

The Parish Council receives no financial support from the Borough Council (other than in the form of a low rent) and is fully responsible for maintaining and administering the site. The site is funded by the leasehold rental income and service charges generated by the sub leases, hourly rental fees from Pinewood Hall and supported by the parish precept i.e. the council tax paid by the 2,772 households in Wokingham Without.

The Borough Council states that it recognises the strategic importance of the Pinewood Centre in terms of the recreational, sporting and community facilities of the Borough but this does not translate into any tangible financial support.
