12. Infrastructure Planning

Representation ID: 4289

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Sport England

Representation Summary:

Sport England considers that the background papers are not up to date or robust having regard to NPPF paragraph 73. How can the authority plan positively (para 70) if you do not have up to date needs and evidence base which indicates the current issue and what is required and where. The right facilities in the right place. The Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study needs updating and the Open Spaces Strategy does not cover all sports facilities and is not CIL compliant.
A Playing Pitch Strategy and an assessment of built sports facilities are considered necessary. It is not considered that this section properly deals with open space sports facilities or playing field needs.
