Representation Summary:


Fix H states approximately 15.5 ha of outdoor sports facilities should be provided and broadly at locations shown on Framework Plan. It also states that opportunities for shared use of school sports facilities could be considered subject to discussion with future providers (page 62). Subsequently, (page 86) outlines the implications for the land budget if shared use is agreed.

Whilst wording provides flexibility and allows for dual use should a delivery partner be accepted, CP concerned Fix H could be cited by objectors as a reason not to reduce overall playing field land area of 15.5 ha and/or to allow for additional residential development on the two areas shown mid east and mid west for 'outdoor sports facilities' on the Spatial Framework.

Suggested the two outdoor sports sites, should be shown in a different colour or hatched to denote that they are an either/or depending on dual use agreement with County Education. Such an approach would provide greater certainty for all parties. Please also refer to document appended.
