Playing Pitch Strategy

Our playing pitch strategy has been updated.

The previous playing pitch strategy (PPS) was produced in 2015 and by 2022 needed updating.

What is a Playing Pitch Strategy?

A playing pitch strategy is designed to set clear priorities for sport in the Council area, including:

  • Providing evidence to support management and investment decisions
  • Support the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan (JLP_
  • Provide planning guidance in relation to pitch provision and quality standards
  • Inform the allocation of s106 funding and other funding streams
  • Help to advance collaborative working with stakeholders

The PPS will play a vital role in encouraging increased sporting activity, as well as promoting health and wellbeing by ensuring there is a good supply of high-quality playing pitch facilities in both Council areas.
