The purpose of the Playing Pitch Strategy (PPS) is to look to address a range of fundamental challenges and assess how outdoor pitch and non-pitch facilities such as tennis can be used to meet the needs of a growing Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES) population, which is relatively prosperous and economically stable whilst also catering for areas of higher deprivation which may have different requirements.

The Strategy has been developed in partnership with a range of agencies including Sport England, national governing bodies of sport including football, cricket, rugby union and tennis and local football, hockey, rugby union, cricket, tennis, bowls and lacrosse clubs. 

The strategy has been developed in line with guidance by Sport England (Playing Pitch Guidance, An approach to Developing and Delivering a Playing Pitch Strategy) 2013

Why are we consulting?

The Playing Pitch Strategy (PPS) will enable the Council to shape its future playing pitch facilities offer. Implementing a planned approach to future provision of sport and physical activity facilities in the local authority over the medium term, will ensure that communities have access to high quality facilities, helping communities improve their health and remain cohesive.

What happens next: 

Following the consultation period and consideration of any comments the final strategy will be agreed by a Single Member Decision and adopted by the Council.  The strategy will then be applied and delivered.
