Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

8.3.1 to 8.3.2 Explanation

Representation ID: 6820

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Leicestershire & Rutland Sport

Representation Summary:

Given the rural nature and scale of Harborough District, Leicesters-Shire & Rutland Sport would support the importance placed on community facilities, specifically as places for Harborough residents to be physically active. Longer drive times to larger leisure facilities in Harborough places even more significance on provision of high quality, accessible local facilities.

GD8 clause 1

Representation ID: 7140

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Leicestershire & Rutland Sport

Representation Summary:

Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport would support this principle. We would also extend this to consider all facilities and spaces that can accommodate physical activity and sport, including school sites. New schools should consider both design that reflects need for community access, as well as Community Use Agreements (CUAs) to ensure that these facilities remain available for public use out of school hours, allowing more opportunities for Harborough residents to be physically active.
