Long term strategy for Sport (FOI)
Long term strategy for Sport (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 12 March 2021.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please can share with me the Economic Development department’s broader long-term strategy for sport in the Island. I would request to see the plans for the next five to 10 years if possible and the plans for the relocation of sports clubs and organisations based at Fort Regent to alternative facilities, as the centre was no longer viewed as ‘the best venue’ for many activities.
The information you have requested is exempt under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 because the information is already accessible to you on www.gov.je. Phase 1 of the Strategy for Sport (the ‘Strategy’) was published in 2019 and can be accessed using the following link.
Sports Facility Delivery Report 2018
Phase 2 of the Strategy, which includes the approach to sport and the use of Fort Regent, is due for release imminently, and is therefore also exempt under Article 36 of the Freedom of Information Law as it will be published shortly and available for you to view on www.gov.je .
