Report of the Strategic Director (Neighbourhoods)


This report highlights the progress that has been made to date in delivering Manchester’s Sport and Physical Strategy and the amendments that are proposed to ensure the city remains on target to deliver a sustained increase in participation levels and how the City builds back fairer from the impacts of the virus. Whilst the approach is not a radical shift from the existing strategic direction, it is important to ensure that Manchester’s strategy remains aligned, not least as it helps all partners to come together behind a consistent and united focus. At a more operational level, this process is important to ensure there is a clear alignment between the work that is taking place and the ease of reporting this back within the strategy framework.


The Committee is invited to comment on this report before its submission to the Executive on 14 September 2022.
