Playing pitch strategy consultation

Cheshire East Council have followed the Sport England document “Playing Pitch Strategy Guidance - An approach to developing and delivering a playing pitch strategy” (2013)

The purpose of the Playing Pitch Strategy (PPS) is to provide a strategic framework which ensures that the provision of outdoor playing pitches meet the local needs of existing and future residents within Cheshire East.The assessment will cover all the major pitch based sports as outlined by Sport England.

The consultation process

The Sport England guidance document requires that a public consultation exercise is undertaken to take account of the wider community interest. The documents published on this page are our pre-approval consultation drafts.

We will review all survey responses and consider your comments before proceeding to ratify and adopt the Cheshire East Playing Pitch Strategy.
