Invitation to complete a survey for Sedgemoor’s Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study – sport, play and recreation facility providers

Sedgemoor District Council is currently in the process of preparing an Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study for the District which incorporates a Playing Pitch Strategy, a Play audit, a Built Facilities assessment and an assessment of informal recreation space.

This study aims to understand the current quality and quantity of provision, the current level of use and demand of each site and the expected level of future demand based on population projections. The assessment results will form part of the evidence base needed to protect existing sites, identify additional needs, support funding bids and inform negotiations with developers when securing contributions towards open space, sport and recreation facilities.

The district council has prepared a survey for Sedgemoor residents. Please express your views on the quality and quantity of open space, sport and recreation provision across the District and within Cheddar.

The questionnaires are accompanied by an Online Interactive Map which displays the known formal and informal sites plus any planned sites or sites that have been lost to development in recent years.

The deadline for completing and submitting the questionnaires is Friday 1st February 2019.

For further information and to follow the progress of the Study please visit the webpage.

The questionnaires can be completed online but if you would prefer to provide your responses by email or letter please respond by email to or alternatively by post to: Planning Policy, Inward Investment and Growth, Sedgemoor District Council, Bridgwater House, King Square, Bridgwater, TA6 3AR.
