Sports clubs should engage with local councils - McAleer

3 October, 2016 - by Declan McAleer


Sinn Féin MLA Declan McAleer has encouraged sports clubs to engage with their local councils to ensure that any sports facility needs are included in each Council Area Plan.

The West Tyrone MLA said:

"I made representations to the Communities Minister regarding capital funding opportunities that are currently available for sports clubs.

"While there are currently no capital funding programmes available from the Department or Sport NI the Minister has stated he is currently finalising the consideration and analysis of responses on Sub Regional Stadia Programme for Soccer.

"Sports NI is also currently working with local councils to develop a Sports Facility Framework and associated Council Area Plans."
