Sport England's Comments

This is Sport England's comments (obtained from the case officer under the Freedom of Information Act 2000):

Dear Victoria,

Firstly apologies for any confusion. I did previously advise that Sport England had no formal comment to make on this application.  That said, I would like to make the following formal  comments such that Sport England’s position is understood and not mistakenly taken to be supportive of the application per say. We have also become concerned regarding the ongoing use of the bowling green and clarity around its future status, so wanted to confirm our position on this specifically also.

I would be grateful if these comments could be made available to Committee Members at tomorrow’s Committee Meeting.

Sport England aims to ensure positive planning for sport, enabling the right facilities to be provided in the right places, based on robust and up-to-date assessments of need for all levels of sport and all sectors of the community. To achieve this, our objectives are to seek to protect existing sports facilities from loss as a result of redevelopment; to enhance existing facilities through improving their quality, accessibility and management; and to provide new facilities that are fit for purpose to meet demands for participation now and in the future.
