Cabinet Decision: 20th January 2011
Title of Item/Report
Sport and Active Leisure Strategy
Record of the Decision
Members considered a report relating to a Sport and Active Leisure Strategy. The Strategy had been produced in order to provide a commonly agreed direction for sport within the Borough for the next five years. It was a Strategy for Stockton Council and it's partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors. It was recognised that partnership and sharing resources and expertise would be key to its success.

The Strategy built upon many related policies and existing partnerships, and aimed to provide quality opportunities for participation in sport and active leisure in order to meet the needs and aspirations of the entire community.

Whereas previous strategies had dealt primarily with facilities, this document attempted to connect the facilities and the activity they made possible to maximise the opportunities for participation and the fulfilment of sporting aspiration.

It was noted that the Strategy would provide the overarching framework for sport & active leisure and was accompanied by eight supplementary delivery plans, which were in development. Those plans were:

Children & Young People
Adults & Older People
Sports Facilities/ Planning
The Voluntary Sector

Information, Marketing & Communications
Access & Inclusion in Sport
The 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games

RESOLVED that the Sport & Active Leisure Strategy 2011-2015 be approved.
