Purpose / Background

Lambeth Council would like to understand how we can help get more people active through fun classes on small pitches, and what kind of improvements we need to make to the pitches to make them more accessible.  

You might know your local small pitch as the Multi Use Games Area (‘the MUGA’) or ‘the Cage’. We are open to all sorts of ideas about improving and redesigning these.  

We are particularly interested to hear from people who:  

  • Want to get active with fun sessions in these pitches. 
  • Live near one of the prospect pitches.  
  • Already use one of the prospect pitches 

Also if you are any of these:  

  • Female 
  • On a low income 
  • Have challenges due to disabilities or ill health,  
  • Have challenges due to your ethnic or cultural background 

The survey asks questions about you and your activity levels and challenges, then ideas about potential improvements to pitches.  

This is a focused project around 11 target pitch opportunities on housing estates and small parks. 

Below is a list of all our target pitches (from North to South), with links for Google Maps:

This consultation is part of our evidence collection towards a fundraising partnership with Football Foundation's Playzones programme to redress inequalities in sports. We are very grateful for any evidence you can help provide towards this. 

When the consultation ends

The report resulting from this engagement will help to secure funding for improvements and improving to some or all of the pitches and improving activity levels in the local community.
