The Modernisation Office (Leisure) presented the report of the Director of Neighbourhood Services which provided an update on the Sport and Physical Activity Strategy following a report to the Health and Wellbeing Board on 28 July 2022, which resolved for the Board to take forward the actions to link the Sport and Physical Activity Strategy with local Place work. The opportunities for mutual advantage were outlined, with the strategy aiming to urge people to be more active, which in turn benefitted their health with reduced weight issues and often reduced medication. The aim to move away from leisure centres to community-based provision was noted, with the possibility of reaching different sectors of the population. It was hoped that referrals from health services could be built into the system too as the overall cost of support and care may be reduced.


Members were supportive and offered suggestions and collaboration.


The Chair suggested that the recommendations be strengthened to reflect the links with local Place work. This was moved by Councillor Mary Jordan and seconded by Abel Adegoke.


Resolved – That the update provided by the Director of Neighbourhoods be noted and the work of the Sports and Physical Activity Strategy be linked to the local Place work.
