Question 90:

Representation ID: 24879

Received: 27/10/2017

Respondent: Sport England

Representation Summary:

Sport England does not encourage a standards approach with regard to the provision of outdoor space for sport, as this fails to take account of current levels of provision and variations in existing supply and future needs. Policies should be based on the current Ipswich Playing Pitch Strategy (2015) which assesses current supply and demand, as well as future requirements, for playing pitches in the Ipswich Borough Council area.

Question 99:

Representation ID: 24880

Received: 27/10/2017

Respondent: Sport England

Representation Summary:

Policies relating to provision for sport should be based on the findings of the Ipswich Playing Pitch Strategy (2015) (for outdoor sport), and the Ipswich Sports Facilities Strategy (2015) (for indoor sport). These assessments used the approved Sport England methodology for such studies and are therefore considered to be a robust evidence base on which to inform local plan policy.
