Sports Facilities Strategies

Sports Facilities Strategies: Examples of projects we have completed include:

  •  A Sports Facilities Strategy for Taunton Deane Borough Council. The assessment included producing evidence-based planning standards to identify current deficiencies and also to calculate future needs based upon anticipated local population increases of 50,000 people by 2026.


The Taunton Deane Sports Facilities Strategy‘You have done a great job and the advice we got back from Sport England is that it is a detailed, thorough and robust document. A huge thank you for your detailed and diligent work, including answering the myriad of questions and facing elected members at their meetings of Scrutiny and Executive’. Ann Rhodes, Strategy Officer, Taunton Deane Borough Council
  •  A Strategic Framework for Sports Facilities Provision for Haringey Council. The borough experiences sharp contrasts in affluence and deprivation, with related health inequalities. The Framework identifies relative need across the borough, including an analysis using Sport England’s Market Segmentation data and proposes ways to address the deficiencies.
  • A Sports Facilities Strategy for Lincoln City Council, involving identifying overall levels of demand, establishing the extent to which the supply of existing facilities met that demand, in quantitative and qualitative terms and determining the areas of deficiency. We also generated standards of provision, prioritised facility provision and produced an action plan.
  • A Built Sports Facilities Strategy for North Somerset Council. The project involved detailed local community and stakeholder consultation, an audit of all sites in the district, the generation and application of local standards of provision and the calculation of developer contributions.
