Playing Pitch and Outdoor Sport Strategy

Ian Lewis made this Freedom of Information request to Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

On the 10 January 2022, I submitted a Freedom of Information Act request, asking:

" Please confirm the names and roles of all those who are on the 'strong and effective steering group' established to lead on the delivery of the strategy (as referenced page 4 of the Assessment Report produced by Knight, Kavanagh and Page. I would also be grateful for copies of the agreed notes/minutes from all meetings held to date."

In response, the Authority said:

"We an advise that the Steering Group has not yet been established but is expected to include representatives from Planning and Parks and Countryside, Sport England and Sports governing Bodies and will be closely tied to the monitoring and review framework to be established as part of the adoption of the Local Plan. No minutes are therefore yet available."

Can you please advise is this Steering Group has now been established, along with copies of the agreed notes/minutes from all meetings held to date if it has?
