BDCA is a well-established charity and transformed Flanders Playing Field into a valued community asset, bringing it back to life through hiring it out to local sports clubs and using it to deliver a range of community projects. BDCA commissioned Sporting Assets to review options to increase community benefit and income potential for the site.
Our support included:
Our options appraisal led to an evidenced based case for BDCA to engage key stakeholders and funding partners on a focused plan to develop their sports provision and community offer. This in turn strengthen their case for secure tenure for the site.
A very thorough piece of work, consulting with a wide range of stakeholders. Their recommendations gave us a clear plan of action, which we started to implement straight away
