A strategic approach to sport and recreation to 2025
The council has developed a Strategic Plan for Sport and Recreation until 2025 to ensure residents have access to a range of facilities that meet their needs, now and in the future. The vision is to have an enhanced infrastructure of facilities and a strong network of people that supports participation in sport and recreation activity within local communities and to make the most of opportunities to achieve outcomes of local, district and borough wide significance.
The Plan will assist the council and other providers of sport and recreation provision to effectively manage and develop facilities and activities over the coming few years. Its development has been informed by a range of consultation findings (attached below).
The Plan was endorsed by the Community Wellbeing Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 25 May 2011 and was adopted by Cabinet in July 2011. A copy of the Plan is available to download at the foot of this page.
The Plan is supported by a delivery schedule (attached below), which sets out the actions to be delivered by relevant organisations over the coming two years and thereafter on a rolling two year basis. This was adopted by Cabinet at its meeting on 31 January 2012.
There is also a range of supporting information that will help inform how different projects and schemes will be prioritised. Below you will find a summary of all sports facilities that the council is currently aware of; this will include an assessment of their condition and the local aspirations where known.
The sports audit report is being updated.
