Update 21/12/22: We would like to thank the 685 individuals and organisations that replied to this consultation. Your responses are being analysed and a summary will be reported in the New Year.
Earlier in 2022, Rother District Council held an extensive community consultation to find out about people’s views on outdoor and indoor leisure provision in the District and what services and facilities are needed over the next 10 years.
Building on the feedback received and research undertaken, the draft Rother Health and Well-being: Leisure Facilities Strategy has been developed. This strategy sets out our long-term vision for leisure activities across the district, the principles on which we propose to develop facilities, and our aim and objectives for leisure provision.
The Council now wants your views on our proposed strategy for outdoor and indoor leisure facilities and services around Rother. We are looking for your views on the draft document. There is also an opportunity to let us know if there is anything missing or new information you would like us to take into account.
