Getting outdoors & Active…..
There is no limit to the Section 106 funding amount however, it is up to the Local Authority on how they use this funding. Most local authorities spend the money on improvements to local playgrounds and introducing outdoor gym facilities.
These facilities are designed to improve the physical fitness and overall health conditions of the local community. They also improve mental health by encouraging people to get outdoors into the fresh air and get active.
Getting people active is a major goal for the Government to help improve the overall health of the population which will, in turn, reduce the demand on the NHS Services.
