As other applicants have AGCS that shouldn't be a complete show stopper but the SC will need to be rewritten and the CAA convinced that in the locality IAPs can be safely handled.
It's the CAA who require ATC to be provided at Booker, (several controllers a few years ago were actually NATS controllers working at West Drayton and doing Wycombe on their days off but of course they were all moved to Swanwick) but I suppose this continuing will depend on whether the gliding club returns.
As far as I know, the SafeSkys contract for ATC was for ADV/ADI rated controllers not APP.
