Facilities & Planning
We want to help ensure there are suitable and accessible facilities across Birmingham to provide formal and informal opportunities for everyone to take part in sport and be physically active.
Sport England have provided useful information and resources for clubs and groups to access. If you are looking to develop or upgrade your own facility take some time to read these important documents before taking the next steps.
- The planning system plays a vital role in shaping the built and natural environments that can play such a big part in helping people to get active.
Design & Costings
- There's a lot to consider when you're developing a sports facility, no matter its size or purpose. Check out Sport England's guidance below on everything from artificial lighting and outdoor surfaces, to sports halls and swimming pools.
- A typical sports club spends around 30% of its running costs on energy, and about £10,000 each year on electricity alone.
- Use the link below for some practical support on how you can drive down running costs, along with advice on dealing with droughts and flood guidance.
Sport Birmingham are here to provide advice and guidance to clubs and organisations across the city. If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
