Anyone for tennis? Blakers Park tennis consultation launched

Tennis players in Brighton & Hove are being asked for their views on the future of tennis facilities at a city park.

Blakers Park Tennis Community Interest Company (CIC) has put a proposal to Brighton & Hove City Council to manage and operate the two public courts at the park.

Public consultation 

The council is now asking residents to let them know how they feel about the proposals and has launched a public consultation.

The proposals are being put forward under a process called Community Asset Transfer (CAT.)

This process, used nationally by many local authorities, enables sports clubs and communities to manage facilities and generate investment for upgrading and maintenance.

A number of other player groups have taken over the running of tennis facilities in the city’s parks in recent years.

Under the proposals, tennis facilities in the city would continue to be available for public use.

Take part in the consultation 

The consultation is open until 19 February.
