Playing Pitch Strategy Consultation

This Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council (BCP Council) Playing Pitch Strategy (PPS) updates and supersedes the playing pitches element of sports strategies in the former Bournemouth Borough Council, Christchurch Borough Council and Borough of Poole areas and covers the period between 2018 and 2033 in alignment with the emerging new Local Plan.

The strategy, which is compliant with Sport England guidance, focuses on football, rugby union, cricket and hockey pitches (both grass and artificial surfaces). Its development has been shaped and overseen by a steering group formed of officers from Active Dorset, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council, sports governing bodies, and Sport England, and extensive consultation has been undertaken (with clubs and providers / owners of pitches for which the update has been undertaken) as part of the process.

This strategy is now subject to wider consultation and your views and feedback will help to inform and update the final version.

Please read the draft Playing Pitch Strategy and the complete the online survey.

If you have any questions about the consultation or need the documents in a different format, please email

The deadline for this survey is midnight on 29 March 2020.
