Local Authorities and Football Provision

Message to Local Authorities

The Football Association, in partnership with the Premier League and The Government (via Sport England) is committed to making a major investment in local football facilities over the next 10 years. To inform and direct this investment we will produce a Local Football Facility Plan (LFFP) for each local authority in Oxfordshire.  To achieve this Knight, Kavanagh and Page (KKP) has been commissioned to manage the process of local engagement, consultation and plan production.

LFFPs are a key priority in the National Football Facility Strategy which aims to increase football participation by delivering:
*             1000 new 3G Artificial Grass Pitches
*             1000 new pavilions (supporting key multi-pitch grass sites)
*             20,000 improved natural turf pitches
*             New or improved access to better indoor and outdoor spaces for social and recreational football

For the next 10 years 90%+ of football investment will only be directed into the projects identified in these plans so it is of paramount importance that we ensure they are as robust and needs led as possible.

The plans are set to be completed by the end of March 2020 so I would appreciate if you could complete the survey above by 26th February.

If you have any questions or issues please do not hesitate to contact me directly via the means below,

Many thanks
