A Playing Pitch Strategy has been completed for Mid Devon by consultant Bennett Leisure and Planning.

The Playing Pitch Strategy is a technical document which includes recommendations for the provision of playing pitch facilities for the district. The strategy looks at football, rugby, cricket, hockey, tennis and bowls facilities and includes an assessment of the future needs for the area.

The Playing Pitch Strategy has been prepared following Sport England’s guidance, and is supported by representatives from the national sports governing bodies and Sport England. The assessment of facilities and future needs have been informed through engagement with local sports clubs, schools and Town and Parish Councils.

The Playing Pitch Strategy will be used by the Council to help inform the preparation of a new Local Plan for Mid Devon and will be capable of being used to help guide planning applications submitted to the Council for determination and the decisions made on these. It will also be capable of being used by the Council in the preparation of other plans, programmes and strategies, and by the sports community in Mid Devon to help inform investment decisions and applications for grant funding.
