Help shape the future of sporting and leisure facilities

Published: 15 March 2024


Sports clubs, leisure users and sports enthusiasts are being invited to their say on sports and leisure facilities in South Oxfordshire.

South Oxfordshire District Council has launched its Playing Pitch and Leisure Facilities consultation looking at current and future provision of facilities across the district.

The consultation can be found on the council’s website:

Copies of the consultation have been sent to sports groups, clubs and leisure providers across the district and can be found at the Council’s offices at Abbey House in Abingdon and in Better Leisure centres for those who do not have access to the internet.

The consultation focuses on opportunities to enhance or improve facilities that are already in place such as adding Artificial Turf Pitches (ATPs), new MUGA (multi use games areas), improvements to village halls/community halls and cycling facilities.

The council appointed external experts to help identify what was already available, what needed improvements and where new facilities could be introduced in the district.

The closing date for comments is Wednesday 17 April.
