As detailed in the Mayor's Legacy Plan, a London Facilities Plan is to be developed. This is in its initial stages and discussions are continuing with Sport England about how to utilise their comprehensive set of facility planning tools to ensure that a needs and evidence based approach to planning for community sport across London occurs.

Part of the initial stages of this approach will be to assess the extent to which this work has already taken place, including analysis of which boroughs have made full use of Sport England's facility planning tools to ensure a consistent set of information is produced across all boroughs.
