Parks’ sports (bowls, cricket and football) facilities consultation

This consultation is now live and will be for the next 6 weeks until 9th July 2019.  If you have an interest in this, please take the time to complete the survey. 

The Bristol Playing Pitch Strategy identified that Bristol has a large number of poor grass pitches and that a significant number of these are in council ownership.  These pitches are supported by an ageing stock of changing rooms/ pavilions.

The council currently offers bowls, football and cricket facilities in parks at an estimated net cost of £201K per annum.  In May 2018, the council adopted a proposal to operate “chargeable sports facilities and other facilities in public parks only when they generate no cost to the council”. The council now wishes to consult on more detailed options to achieve this.
