Weeks left for sports consultation

Residents across South Ayrshire have just two weeks left to put forward their views on sports and leisure facilities and services throughout the area and help shape the Council’s first Sport and Active Leisure Strategy.

The Council is reviewing the way it provides sports and leisure in an effort to ensure facilities and services help South Ayrshire and its residents become healthier and fitter. It is seeking views on a number of areas that will feed into the development of the new strategy:

the opportunities to take part in sport and active leisure activities across South Ayrshire;

the sport and leisure facilities provided by the Council; and

how the Council should deliver sport and leisure.

Hundreds of people have already had their say since the consultation got underway and there’s still time to make sure you don’t miss out. Complete the consultation survey – available online or in print form until Friday 25 January – and us know what you think about sport and leisure provision, how easy it is to participate in sports, the quality and quantity of sports facilities, the use of school sports facilities and whether key sports should be targeted for support and financial assistance.

Surveys can be completed online at www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/consultations. Printed copies of the survey, which must be returned using the Freepost address provided, are available from most Council buildings including sports and activity centres, swimming pools, libraries and customer services centres.

All surveys must be completed and returned by Friday 25 January 2013.
