Invitation to comment on Draft National Sports Facilities Strategy
The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has prepared a draft National Sports Facilities Strategy and is inviting comments from interested parties prior to its finalisation. The draft strategy is available here.
The aim of the draft National Sports Facilities Strategy is to provide policy direction to guide future investment and grant assistance at national, regional and local level and to ensure a coordinated approach across the various Government Departments and State agencies involved in supporting the provision of sports facilities. The strategy recognises the economic, health and social benefits of sport and physical activity and the role of sports facilities in maximising these benefits. It also recognises that in the current economic climate a much lower level of investment in facilities will be made under the period of the strategy and therefore there is a need to adopt a more targeted approach to future sports facility funding.
The closing date for receipt of submissions is close of business on Friday, 26th October 2012. Submissions should be sent to:
Ms Carol O’Reilly
Sports Policy and Campus Division
Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport

Or by email: email@example.com
Please note that all submissions to the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport for this purpose are subject to release under the Freedom of Information Acts 1997 and 2003 unless the sender indicates that certain specified information is commercially sensitive.
