Active Communities Strategy

In December 2018, Stratford-on-Avon District Council's Cabinet endorsed the new Active Communities Strategy (ACS) and year one delivery plan. In July 2021, Cabinet approved the ACS Delivery Plan for the next three years.

The ACS runs from 2019 to 2024 and links with the Corporate Strategy objective ‘to improve the health and wellbeing of our local communities.' In 2022, as part of the new leisure contract with Everyone Active, the running of this was taken on by them with SDC providing a monitoring role.

The strategy seeks to facilitate and provide activities for local communities with the goal of improving health and wellbeing. The strategy will advocate exercise opportunities by working with key partners to raise the profile of the current leisure offer.

The strategy has three main themes:

  • Strategic Theme 1 – Encourage active communities to improve health and wellbeing
  • Strategic Theme 2 – Enhancing and sustaining facility provision
  • Strategic Theme 3 – To raise the profile of sport and physical activity
