Sports and Leisure Strategy to 2033

We are looking at the future of sport and leisure facilities in the district and we want to hear from you.

We have created a leisure strategy following an extensive assessment of the leisure facilities in the district such as running tracks, sports halls and football pitches as well as playgrounds and allotments.

This leisure strategy is intended to inform planners and developers up until 2033 so that they include all the necessary leisure provision for the area’s growing population.  

Please tell us what you think by responding to our survey by midnight, Monday 7 May 2018.

After the consultation closes, we will publish a report which summarises the feedback received and the council’s response to any prevalent issues or suggestions that emerged.  Respondents will only be named in this report where they have been made on behalf of groups or organisations. 

For more information about the council’s leisure strategy or this consultation, or to obtain a paper response form, please contact the South Oxfordshire Leisure Team.
