Providing for sport and recreation through new housing development

E-mail Print

In a time of increasing demands on existing public funds, sport needs to look towards different funding opportunities to help provide for new community sport and recreation facilities. Sport England considers that new housing developments provide the opportunity to fund new community sports and recreation facilities.
