Torridge District Council and North Devon Council have worked together in partnership with Sport England and the National Governing Bodies for Football, Rugby Union, Cricket, Hockey and Bowls to develop a Playing Pitch Strategy for the area.

The Vision for the Strategy is:

"To fully understand the quantity and quality of our current stock of playing pitches and changing provision to ensure that we: Protect the facilities that are used and valued by our current population; Provide new facilities in the right locations to cater for increased demand and population; and Enhance facilities to ensure that quality meets twenty-first century expectations and attracts new and existing users."

The Strategy provides a framework for ensuring the development, and sustainability, of larger urban pitch sport sites, which are capable of providing a range of opportunities for all members of the community, whilst also protecting the network of smaller, single pitch sport sites in rural areas which help to sustain the very fabric of village life.

  • The draft strategy documentation can be found on the right hand side of this page.
  • We welcome all kinds of comments from any club, organisation, school, Council....in fact, everyone who works, lives or visits the Torridge District!

PLEASE NOTE THAT COMMENTS RECEIVED AFTER THE 21 JULY 2017 WILL NOT BE INCLUDED

We look forward to hearing from you!
