Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study


The evidence base in relation to Open Space, Sport and Recreation is made up of five individual studies. These include:

  • The Playing Pitch Strategy
  • The Open Space Study
  • The Indoor/Built Sports Facility Needs Assessment
  • The Community and Stakeholder Consultation Report
  • Site Options Analysis - Tunbridge Wells Borough Council Sports Hub

A review of the 2017 Playing Pitch Strategy was carried out last year by our consultants Strategic Leisure with input from the relevant National Governing Bodies and Sport England. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on workloads and changes in personnel at Sport England, the review has not yet been signed off by Sport England.

These studies are collectively referred to as the Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study and form part of the evidence base which will be used to inform policies and allocations within the new Local Plan.
