Mill Road Depot Draft Planning and Development Brief SPD

Representation ID: 31116

Received: 22/07/2016

Respondent: Sport England

Representation Summary:

The site is a relatively constrained urban site with limited opportunity for on-site provision for sport. We therefore agree with Cambridge City Council (Para.4.4.9) that the best approach for providing for sport will be through financial contributions to improve the quantitative or qualitative off-site provision of facilities within the catchment area of the proposed development. Cambridge City Council have completed a Playing Pitch Strategy and Sports Facilities Strategy which will help identify investment priorities in the vicinity of the site relating to outdoor and indoor sport.

Sport England would be happy to advise further on the details of off-site provision.
