Save Redlands Community Sports Hub.
Why is this important?
Redlands has provided a wide range of sports facilities for many years and is a valued local facility that the town needs. The decision to close the site in the summer of 2022 is going to seriously reduce the provision of sports facilities in the area.
The site is owned by Dorset Council and leased to Weymouth College so both organisations are in a position to work together to keep the site open. So we are asking for the site to be kept open whilst a longer term plan for its future is worked out.
It is now widely recognized that having an active lifestyle is critical to remaining fit and healthy. So the provision of a wide range of sporting facilities is essential to ensure as many residents as possible can keep active. Closing Redlands makes no sense from this point of view.
