South Oxfordshire District Council is looking at the future of sport and leisure facilities in the district and wants to hear from the people who use them, now and in the future.
The council has undertaken an extensive assessment of the leisure facilities in the district such as running tracks, sports halls and football pitches as well as playgrounds and allotments. You can view some of the findings here. This sports and leisure strategy is intended to inform planners and developers up until 2033 so that they include all the necessary leisure provision for the area’s growing population.
Now the council is looking for feedback from the public on the documents and has set up a survey for public views.
Everyone has until midnight on Monday 7 May to add their comments.
South Oxfordshire District Council cabinet member for community services Cllr Lynn Lloyd said: “We would really encourage residents to respond to this survey to let us know that what we have compiled is true reflection of the facilities we have now and what it seems we will need in the future.
“We know how important sport and leisure is to our wellbeing, so it is vital so that our planners and developers are well informed when it comes to this part of people’s lives.”
After the consultation closes, the council will publish a report which summarises the feedback received.
The council expects to review and update the action plan annually in conjunction with Sport England, national governing bodies of sport and Parish and Town Councils.
