Study to identify new sports facilities in Swaffham undertaken by Breckland Council
A feasibility study to identify new sports facilities in Swaffham will be undertaken by the district council.
Breckland Council has appointed consultants, Max Associates, to identify the current demand for facilities in the town as well as the likely future demand.
Any facilities would need to operate on a non-subsidised basis rather than the traditional local authority leisure centre style.
As part of the feasibility study, the council is keen to consult with local stakeholders to keep them up to date with the work being completed and to enable them to provide input.
Stakeholders are invited to a consultation meeting on Thursday, January 17, from 11am to 1pm in the Anglian Room at the Breckland Council offices at Elizabeth House, Dereham.
A representative from Sport England will be in attendance at the meeting.
Breckland councillor Ian Sherwood, who has represented Swaffham for 20 years, said: “I have been asking for the feasibility study to be done, and am pleased it is being done in a very quick period.
“I would like to encourage all the sports organisations in the town to get involved. They have all been contacted already.
“The leisure facilities in Swaffham have not been as they should have been for far too long, so this is great news.”
