Oadby & Wigston Borough Council Playing Pitch Strategy

Having now adopted the Borough of Oadby and Wigston Local Plan (2011-2031), the Council is seeking to update its existing Playing Pitch Strategy, covering the period up to 2031.

 

This new Playing Pitch Strategy is seeking to audit the existing supply of sports pitches and facilities, as well as to ascertain the future demand for sports played outdoors, within the Borough of Oadby and Wigston. To achieve this, we are looking to identify who is using the Borough’s outdoor sports pitches and sporting facilities to take part in formal sporting activities. We are also very keen to understand more about the people and groups who are using these facilities; informally and recreationally.

 

The Council is keen to understand more about your experiences and expectations for these spaces, both now and in the future.

 

Therefore, we would be very grateful if you could take the time (approximately 5 to 6 minutes) to complete and submit your views via this short Survey.
