Residents and organisations asked to help shape physical activity strategy for North Somerset

North Somerset Council are inviting residents to help shape their new Physical Activity Strategy by completing a short survey.

The strategy will set out the council’s priorities to improve physical activity participation, while reducing inequalities in activity levels across the area over the next three years (2023-2026).

During the five-week survey period, the council is also seeking feedback from organisations including formal and informal sports and physical activity clubs, groups, schools, town and parish councils.

Residents are being invited to share:

  • how active they are,
  • how important being physically active is to them,
  • which activities people take part in, where and when, whether they take part alone or with others, and their reasons for taking part in activities, and
  • details of any barriers that prevent them from being active.

The views provided within the consultation will help council officers to understand what residents want and see as priorities. It is planned for the strategy to be published in late 2023 once it has been considered and approved by local health and place scrutiny panels.
