Additional documents:

Minutes:

At the invitation of the Chairman, Councillors Mrs Hockley, Mrs Trott and Ms Pankhurst addressed the Panel on this item.

 

The Panel received a presentation by the Public Spaces Operations Manager which provided members with an overview of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the hire of Council owned sports pitches across the Borough and the effect on bookings since the return to normal of pitch hire availability.  The presentation also provided members with information on the recently adopted Playing Pitch Strategy. A copy of the presentation is attached to these minutes as Appendix A.

 

Members discussed the possibility of providing facilities for additional types of sport, such as athletics, cycling and petanqe.  The Public Spaces Operations Manager advised that additional facilities can be considered but would be subject to community demand, the availability of suitable land and the appropriate level of funding being available.

 

Members also discussed the Section 106 contributions that developers often make in lieu of providing sporting facilities as part of a new planning application. Concerns were raised that even if funding is provided to meet the increased demand for facilities, the Council does not have large areas of land that it can make available to provide them.

 

The construction of 3G sports pitches in the Borough was discussed by the Panel and concerns were raised in respect of the impact the plastic material used in their construction may have on the environment. The potential environmental impact of any new facilities on Fareham Borough Council land will be considered as part of any proposals brought forward to the Executive for decision.

 

RESOLVED that the Streetscene Scrutiny Panel notes the content of the presentation.
