Residents are being urged to throw their ideas into the ‘pot’ for future sporting and leisure opportunities in Milton Keynes.

All ideas will be kept on a list with some potentially being marketed if an appropriate council-owned site comes forward. Any outcomes from these ideas would dovetail into the council’s own existing Sport and Active Communities Strategy, which covers more ‘traditional’ sports and activities, such as rugby, tennis and swimming.

Councillor Liz Gifford, the Cabinet member responsible for Community Services, said: “We want to hear from as many people as possible, and we want to hear all manner of ideas.

“Milton Keynes already has a reputation for unusual or more ‘out there’ sports, so nothing will be dismissed out of hand, an whatever we can do to encourage more people to take up sport and exercise, and pursue a healthier lifestyle, has to be good.”
