Greater Norwich Physical Activity and Sport Strategy

 The Greater Norwich Physical Activity and Sports Strategy (PASS) was accepted by the GNGB at their meeting on 6 October 2022. . This strategy replaces the 2014 Sports Facilities and Playing Pitches study, which has previously informed decisions around sport and physical activity infrastructure.

The PASS has been match funded by Sport England and developed in accordance with their Strategic Outcomes Planning Guidance. The strategy provides recommendations to implement an integrated and more inclusive understanding of physical activity and sport, considering its effects on mental as well as physical health whilst also seeking to address barriers to participation. This updated strategy introduces a broader approach, which moves away from only considering physical activity in relation to that which is undertaken in a sports facility. It also recognises the importance of informal forms of physical activity such as walking for pleasure or opting to cycle to work instead of using the car.

The recommendations and strategic direction are identified in the overarching PASS document which have been informed by Playing Pitch Strategy and Built Facilities Assessments for South Norfolk, Broadland, and Norwich.

All associated documents are available below.
