The council wants the public’s views on a new strategy which aims to make indoor sports facilities more accessible for residents.

The Indoor Sports Facilities Strategy sets out how it will ensure that people can access quality indoor sports and leisure spaces.

The strategy has been developed as part of the council’s health and wellbeing agenda and a wider programme of work to encourage participate in sport. The authority hopes to identify potential barriers preventing people participating in sport.

Pam Garraway, corporate director for housing and community living, said: “We are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of residents, and for this to happen we need to ensure that people can access good indoor sports facilities.

“This is why we are keen to hear from people all over the town, particularly those who currently feel that their sport and physical activity needs could be met in a better way.

“We are also keen to hear about what sports and physical activities residents currently participate in and those that people would like to take part in.”
