We were appointed in early summer to carry out a playing pitch assessment for Waverley Borough Council in Surrey. This was linked to the development of their local Core Strategy and is intended to set local standards for provision and guide their calculation of Planning Infrastructure Charges. As ever, we followed Sport England’s guidance “Towards a Level Playing Field.” http://www.sportengland.org/facilities__planning/playing_field/playing_pitch_strategy.aspx
At the time of writing we have just submitted our interim report.
One striking feature of the area is the healthy state of cricket with many thriving and successful clubs. We also saw some of the most impressive and attractive pavilions. The featured photo shows the pavilion of Brook Cricket Club
