With the lifting of most restrictions not far away, and hopes for the resuming of arts, leisure and recreational activities, Bromsgrove District Council are inviting residents to give their views on the future of leisure provision across the district.

Residents who live in the district or cross borders to visit for recreational purposes, are being encouraged to take part in three short surveys to give their views on arts, culture, heritage, parks, open spaces and physical activity, recreation, and exercise, in the wake of the pandemic.

The surveys aim to collect data that can be used to understand what residents and visitors consider important to current and future provision of leisure and cultural services. This information will help shape the future planning and development of services and facilities for the next 10 years.

Leisure Portfolio Holder, Cllr Phil Thomas, said: “We really want to get a better understanding of how residents use the current provision and what they might like to see in the future. Recreation, leisure, physical activity, arts, culture, parks and open spaces all make a significant contribution to our quality of life, physical and mental health. This is even more important when considering recovery from the covid-19 pandemic, so please take 15 minutes to give us your views and make your opinion count.”

These surveys take approximately 5 mins each to complete (15 mins total) and will close on Wednesday 4 August at 5pm.

All three surveys are available at www.bromsgrove.gov.uk/consultations.

The Council have commissioned 'Leisure and Cultural Strategies' to consult on this project and assist with building a strategy for leisure services going forward.
