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 was adopted by Cabinet in July 2011. A copy of the Plan is available to download below.

Leisure and Recreational Needs Assessment 2022

The purpose of this assessment is to provide information on the existing provision and the long term needs of the borough, enabling decisions to be made on which spaces and facilities should be protected or improved whilst identifying provision which may no longer be suitable.
