Funding for sport and leisure in the countryside

E-mail Print

In 1998, the National Lottery Act was revised. Following this, Sport England released its ten-year strategy "Investing in our Sporting Future" in May 1999. Specifically for the countryside, there is a commitment to fund five hundred Community Revenue projects in rural areas.

Despite the pressures on the countryside, Sport England believes there is scope for increasing the number of people taking part in activities there, while remaining in harmony with other users. The activities must be carried out with respect for the natural environment and consequently, Sport England will encourage applicants to embrace sustainable promotion and to develop codes of good practice.
