Leisure and physical activity - tell us what you want!

Published on Thursday, 21st May 2020

The survey asks about people’s exercise habits, the things that prevent them from exercising, which leisure facilities they use and what would encourage them to exercise more frequently.

North Warwickshire Borough Council is undertaking a strategic review of the delivery of its leisure and physical activity service provision across the area, and it has engaged Max Associates / Leisure Net as its consultants to support this project. 

It is recognised, both nationally and locally, that strategically directed leisure services and facilities can have a significant and positive impact on physical and mental health and wellbeing, economic regeneration, educational attainment and social cohesion, as well as being important in their own right.

The Borough Council is undertaking its review to inform the important decisions required that will enable the Authority to deliver a longer-term, sustainable investment in local leisure facilities, most particularly in respect of the provision made in Atherstone and Polesworth, where the current facilities are relatively old.

To support this process, the Borough Council and its consultants have developed a community survey (see below). The survey asks about people’s exercise habits, the things that prevent them from exercising, which leisure facilities they use and what would encourage them to exercise more frequently. It is quick and anonymous to complete and will help to inform the decisions to be taken by Councillors about future service provision. Survey returns are required by Sunday 7 June 2020.

Council Leader, Cllr David Wright, said “We recognise the importance of considering our Leisure Service across the whole of North Warwickshire and the future provision that is required to meet needs of our local community.  I would, therefore, encourage everyone to complete and return the anonymous survey.  The views of our residents are essential in ensuring that we provide the right facilities and services that will be valued by local people for many years to come.”
