Planning for sport and recreation

Derbyshire Dales Built Sports Facilities, Playing Pitch and Open Space Strategy

Our district wide strategy developed with a range of stakeholders.

The strategy is in three sections. Each contains a report identifying the need for a range of facilities and by sport/activity.


Many high level priorities have emerged in completing this strategy:

  • Develop at least one 3rd/4th generation full size, artificial turf pitch (currently 0)
  • Work with schools to improve the level of community use at evenings and weekends
  • Support community groups/clubs to be more involved in running community sport facilities

A large number of other priorities are in the strategy documents above.
