Cheshire West and Chester Council has launched a consultation programme to seek the views of residents, clubs and local organisations as it seeks to reset its sports strategy for the future. The focus will be on all outdoor sports facilities in the area, including football, rugby, cricket, hockey and artificial pitch provision. The consultation outcome will help to set future priorities and will shape local planning provision.
Councillor Louise Gittins, cabinet member for Culture, Leisure and Wellbeing, said the review would "serve as a key evidence base to inform future strategic planning and investment in sport and recreation facilities”.
"I would urge anyone with an interest in pitch provision to take the time to complete the questionnaire,” she added.
The consultation process is being managed by a steering group including council representatives, as well as representatives from Sport England, Active Cheshire and Brio Leisure. The formal consultation period runs until 5 April 2016.
