As part of a consortia approach, overseen by the Leicester-Shire and Rutland Culture Board; the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) alongside Sport England, Leicestershire County Council, Leicester City council, the District and Borough Councils and Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport (the County Sport Partnership ) have agreed to develop a growth plan outlining the economic impact , opportunities and priorities for the sport and physical activity sector to fully engage with the LLEPs Strategic Economic Plan. The purpose of this piece of work is to develop a detailed growth action plan for sport and physical activity. The plan must be clear and detailed action plan so that we understand what sport manufacturing, retail, events and sub sectors within sport make, in terms economic impact, and can fully evidence the correlation to the local economy. We anticipate that this work will add clarity on the relative economic impact ( the baseline) and the business case ( opportunities and challenges) for growth in the sport and physical activity sector.
