© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Learning objectives Learning Objectives What leisure and sports facilities does local government provide for us? How are public leisure services funded? How do local councils make decisions about which leisure services to provide? Why are rules and regulations important in sport? © Boardworks Ltd of 25
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 There are lots of ways for people to spend their free time! What activities do you enjoy doing? What are sport and leisure facilities? As a class think of all the different sport and leisure activities which you can do in the area where you live, and write them in the box below.
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Private and public facilities In your local area there are two different types of leisure and sport facilities: private facilities, which are owned by businesses, and Look at the following different sport and leisure activities. Which ones use private facilities and which ones use public facilities? public facilities, which are provided by local councils.
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Which services do we pay for?
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Public facilities like libraries and skate parks are funded through money from council tax. Council tax is used to fund many other services in your local area as well, such as How are public facilities funded? This is money which all householders over 18 have to pay to their local government. waste disposal, and care for the elderly. public transport

You have been allocated a fixed sum of money to provide a new leisure facility for the local area. Imagine you work for your local council on the Leisure Committee. The money can go towards the development of: Deciding on a new leisure facility a swimming pool, a skate park, or a community centre.
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 A public meeting has been held to give local residents their chance to have a say about which new leisure facility they would like in the area. You must read through the notes from this meeting and decide which facility would be of most benefit to the local area, and should get the funding. Deciding on a new leisure facility Remember to consider the following things: What type of people will use the facility? How often will it be used? How costly will it be to maintain? What impact will it have on the local area?
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Swimming pool PROS The nearest swimming pool is 10 miles away. Residents have complained it’s not easy to access. CONS Swimming pools are costly to run. Can the council afford it? Older residents are concerned about the long opening hours. Swimming is a universal sport which appeals to people of all ages. The new pool will provide jobs for local people.
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Skate park PROS There is a lack of facilities in the area for youths. A skate park would give them a place to gather. A skate park would encourage young people to be more active. The facility would be cheap to maintain. CONS A skate park will only appeal to a small section of the community. Some residents are concerned about young people getting together and creating a nuisance.
© Boardworks Ltd of 25 Community Centre PROS A community centre will have a positive impact on the community, bringing different groups together. It can be used all year round. CONS Younger residents feel the centre would only be used by older sections of the community. There is no fee to use the centre, so extra funding will be needed to cover the running costs.
