Inspiring active lives by investing in public sport and wellbeing hubs

Jersey’s Inspiring Active Places Strategy is a bold, ambitious strategy. It sets out the Government’s ambition to redevelop and replace its existing sports facilities with a network of public sport and wellbeing hubs. This is a 10-year plan to invest over £100m in new, state of the art sport and wellbeing hubs for islanders, the scale of which Jersey has never seen before.

The Government recognises that for islanders to lead an active and healthy life, they need access to high quality public sports facilities which can also deliver a range of health and wellbeing activities and services. This is fundamental to improving islanders’ wellbeing and mental and physical health, a key priority within the Government’s Common Strategic Policy consultation and an important driver in a post-Covid Jersey.

Launching the Inspiring Active Places Strategy is the start of a long-term process where public consultation will be at the heart of the design and scope of each project as we progress.  The layouts and facility mix of each, will be further developed from the public consultation and detailed discussions with key stakeholders.  Together we have a unique opportunity to deliver inspirational facilities which support our and future generations’ health and well-being and sporting ambition.

The Inspiring Active Places Strategy will deliver a network of new and refurbished public sport and wellbeing hubs in the following locations:

Le Rocquier

The vision is that Le Rocquier will be the state of the art public sport and wellbeing hub for the east of the Island. Part of the centre will be available for the delivery of school PE and sport during the day with the rest of the facility available for the whole community…

Keeping you informed with updates on progress

This website will be the focal point for an ongoing conversation with Islanders on the progress being made in delivering the strategy.
