Kingsbridge Open Space, Sport & Recreation Plan 2017-2027

Have your say!

Access to high quality open spaces and opportunities for sport and recreation makes an important contribution to our health and well-being.  But you already know that! Kingsbridge Town Council has reviewed the current facilities and resources enjoyed by the Kingsbridge community and now wishes to identify opportunities for improvements and new projects.
Therefore, we have drafted a Kingsbridge Open Space, Sport and Recreation Plan for the next 10 years and have already contacted all Kingsbridge based sports and amenity groups which have given us a helping hand.

The draft OSSR gives you:

  • a setting-the-scene introduction and rationale,
  • a stocktake of what we already have alongside current issues,
  • and suggested improvements and new facilities required.

We have not produced a glossy questionnaire with leading questions! We merely ask you to take a look at the draft document, find areas which dovetail with your own interests, and just let us have your opinions.  It’s as simple as that.  Thank you.

The deadline for your feedback is Friday 8th September.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Martin Johnson, Town Clerk, via email or 01548.857073.
