Welcome to our first Malvern Hills District Sport & Leisure Strategy, entitled Active Communities Malvern Hills District – A Vision for the Future.

This strategy defines how the council will support sport and leisure provision in the future.

It has been developed within the context of the council being committed to improving the quality of life for all of our communities, within an environment of change and financial constraint.

The strategy identifies key priorities for the council in the future, through its new ‘deal' with the community and a clear three pronged policy position on what we will continue to do, what we will support and enable others to do and what we will no longer do.

The report comprises of a Headline Strategy which provides the concise strategic overview of the strategy and an additional 11 chapters, which provide a full comprehensive review.
