25/11/2021 - WIRRAL LOCAL PLAN PUBLICATION OF LOCAL PLAN EVIDENCE STUDIES: PLAYING PITCH AND OUTDOOR SPORT STRATEGY 2021 ref: 4928    For Determination

This report seeks approval for the publication of an update to Wirral Council’s Playing Pitch and Outdoor Sport Strategy 2021 which has been prepared as part of the suite of Local Plan evidence documents. 

 

Wirral Council’s existing Playing Pitch and Outdoor Sports Strategy was last published in 2016.  Sport England consider such strategies, which are prepared in line with a nationally approved methodology, to be out-of-date when the data on which they are based is more than three-years old.  The 2021 update, attached to this report as Appendices 1 and 2, has been prepared in consultation with local partners and governing bodies for sport and has been endorsed by Sport England.
