    BASINGSTOKE AND DEANE BOROUGH COUNCIL – LEISURE AND RECREATION NEEDS ASSESSMENT FINAL REPORT MAY 2015 – VERSION 3

    Section 1: Introduction 1.1 Purpose of Study

    Basingstoke and Deane has a long tradition of sports participation and the Council recognises that sport and recreation facilities are essential components of the borough’s built infrastructure which both drive and respond to growth, change and improvement across the borough. The Council acknowledges that sport, leisure and recreation make a wider contribution to society than a narrow focus on sports participation might suggest. Sport and recreation play a key role in meeting key corporate policy priorities by contributing to improvements in the health and quality of

    life of its residents as well as contributing greatly to a high quality infrastructure and sense of place. The Council also notes that sport and recreation are integral and beneficial elements of shared service provision, such as school sites meeting the sporting needs of both education providers and the wider community.

    With the advent of changing national planning policy and the notable changes to Basingstoke and

    Deane in terms of population and housing, the Council were keen to undertake a necessary update to the previous Leisure and Recreation Needs Assessment (LRNA) from 2008. This updated LRNA is also an essential component of the emerging Local Plan and requisite Infrastructure Development Plan. This overall review is also supported by the Council’s new Playing Pitch Strategy (PPS) which has been developed in conjunction with this report. Whilst the key recommendations of the PPS are presented in this report, the overall strategy itself (and its specific evidence base including AGPs) is presented within a separate document that complements this study.

    1.2 Policy Context The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) is clear about the role that sport can play in delivering sustainable communities by promoting health and well-being and improving people’s quality of life. Sport England, working within the provisions of the NPPF, wishes to see local planning policy protect, enhance and provide for sports facilities based on robust and up-to-date assessments

    of need, as well as helping to realise the wider benefits that participation in sport can bring.

    This LRNA provides detailed evidence that supports both Sport England’s and the Council’s own aspirations and ensures that the importance of sports facility provision becomes and remains a central part of planning policy and development management for Basingstoke and Deane. This detailed assessment of sport and recreation facility needs in Basingstoke and Deane is also a

    vital part of the Council’s wider aim of developing and delivering sound policies. Sound policy can only be developed in the context of objectively assessed needs, which are in turn used to inform the development of a strategy for sport and recreation. The priorities and high level policies which are referred to within this study document focus on how best to protect, enhance and provide appropriate sports facilities and represent the basis for consistent application through development management within Basingstoke and Deane.

    Following the most up to date guidance from Sport England, this study takes a clearly justified and

    positive approach to planning for sport. The study has been positively prepared (based on objectively assessed needs), is consistent with national policy (reflecting the NPPF), is justified (having considered alternatives) and effective (being deliverable). This combination of factors ensures that the study provides a sound basis for future policies in order to inform decisions about future provision and investment, in particular S106 and the forthcoming Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

    The CIL was established to enable planning authorities to set a charge for new development in their area and use the funds collected to provide supporting infrastructure. The Regulations require the local authority to demonstrate that it has an infrastructure funding gap and then use evidence to demonstrate that the proposed CIL rates are economically viable in order to set a CIL which will be accepted as sound by an inspector. The Draft Charging Schedule was published for consultation between 7 November and 19 December

    2014. The Council is currently analysing the responses and intends to submit the Draft Charging Schedule for an Examination during 2015, following Examination of the Local Plan.

    The Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan (2011-2029) was submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government via the Planning Inspectorate for formal examination on 9 October 2014. Following feedback from the Inspector, this has been updated and published for public consultation. It will be reexamined in autumn 2015 with a view that it will be adopted in

    spring 2016.

    This assessment will inform Policy CN8 – Community, Leisure and Cultural Facilities. This assessment will support the following approach to leisure and culture as identified in the Local Plan:

    “As part of the Local Plan objective to advance the health and well-being of the borough’s communities, the Council will seek to reinforce existing levels of infrastructure in relation to community, leisure and cultural facilities in order to support increased and sustained participation within local communities. This will help to r
