A full review of sport, leisure and physical activity offer across North East Lincolnshire is being carried out to make sure it’s fit for purpose, meets our residents’ needs and those of our future population.
The council is keen to understand how public and private leisure facilities are used by residents, as well as exploring opportunities for future provision of facilities and services.
The survey is also designed to gauge people’s current attitudes towards physical activities and exercise, explore what barriers there may be towards use of facilities so that this can be taken into account in future decisions, and understand how active people are, particularly in the wake of the pandemic.
Cllr Tom Furneaux, Cabinet member with responsibility for sport and leisure, said: “People’s attitudes towards physical exercise have changed a lot in recent years.
“The effect of the pandemic and the current cost of living are just two factors that I’m sure will have changed people’s approach to exercise. It might be that people are choosing to use their parks and our lovely sea front more, or that they want different forms of exercise from the traditional form.
“Whatever your approach, we’d like to understand, and if there are barriers that we can help remove, get them sorted out.”
There will also be a number of focus groups and one-to-one conversations in public places over the coming months so you can have your say.
The survey closes on Wednesday 26 October 2022.
