PROJECT AIMS

The aims of the project are to:

  1. Audit current pitch provision in relation to quantity; quality and accessibility, as well as to help identify future requirements, in line with sports club development, and population growth.
  2. Make an objective assessment of demand, including detailed consultation with users, in relation to current provision, and specifically identify any areas of over or under-provision.
  3. Develop a Playing Pitch Strategy and Action Plan that will address any issues identified with current provision, and provide recommendations for future provision, in context of established local needs and aspirations, together with the Government’s future population projections for the District.
