 The Horsham: Society Sports & Leisure Policy

The Society recognizes the importance of sport and leisure activities in the life of the town and wishes to see a broad range of different types of provision to meet the needs and aspirations of residents of all ages and abilities. Accordingly the Society will give sympathetic and positive consideration to proposals and petitions for the public or private provision of enabling facilities such as land, buildings, venues, equipment, personnel and events.

 The default position will be to provide support.

 Where there are proposals to remove or downgrade public or private facilities, the Society will require clear evidence that demand no longer justifies the provision of such facilities or will require concrete assurance that demand will be met satisfactorily by the provision of similar or upgraded alternatives.

 In the absence of such evidence and assurances, the Society will oppose removal or downgrade.
